Help connect Bicester

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Bicester’s Slow Ways.

I’d agree with the previous reviewer that walking in the opposite direction gives a more satisfying conclusion, finishing with great views from Brill over the surrounding countryside, however this leg was part of a longer journey so not possible for us and we concluded walking through the housing and commercial developments around Bicester....
