There does not seem to be any way to get from the Berinsfield Roundabout to Oxford by cycle. I have now tried all three ways I could think off (1. the A4074 = ridiculously hostile with heavy fast traffic and no protected space for cycling what so ever; 2. Abingdon Road via Abingdon = long detour, also pretty hostile; 3. The Old Roman road, non-paved and not sign-posted) and all of them are utterly awful. I cannot be, that you provide not at least provide some minimum provision to get from Berinsfield to Oxford by bicycle. I am a fairly experienced, confident, able-bodied cyclist and I am out of ideas how to get from there to Oxford.
Thank you for your enquiry. This issue has been passed onto the relevant team for investigation.

Thank you for your enquiry. I have visited the site and assessed the problem that you have identified. Unfortunately it does not meet our current intervention criteria so I cannot arrange a repair. We will continue to monitor this during our routine inspections.
