An estimated 20,000 people cycle into Oxford every day. It is the second most popular city for cycling after Cambridge. Despite the heavy number of buses, some parts of Oxford are conducive to cycling. For example, in the historic heart of Oxford many roads have been closed to cars creating more space for cyclists. Another feature of Oxford is the lack of car parking facilities, this makes cycling into town more convenient. Though if you look around, there also appears to be a shortage of cycle parking facilities.
