Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My friend and I hire bikes from here on a regular basis, and have done for years. The Customer Service is brilliant and the bikes are well maintained and comfortable. We do our own tour along the Thames Path, highly recommend.

You can't live in Oxford without a bike and I would highly recommend Bainton Bikes if you want to hire one. We've had several experiences with them, including a full year's hire, and have been completely satisfied with both the bikes and the after sales service. In addition to the charm of their shop, there was always someone on hand to repair any minor damage or replace a lock that had been rusted by the rain, free of charge. In short, everything that can happen in a year of daily use of a bike.

We spent 3 days in Oxford riding on bikes. The guys from Baiton Bikes were helpful.
I recommend contacting them to rent a bike. Oxford is great for visiting on a bike.

We rented electric bikes from Bainton. They were really helpful and had plenty of good advice for us for our day in the Cotswolds. The bikes were excellent. Very good value.
Definitely will use Bainton again.

Hired a tandem for the day - bike was in good condition (as you'd expect from a bike shop i guess!) and a great set of relaxed, friendly and helpful staff. Thank you!

I hired a bike from Bainton and everything was really quick and easy. The shop is not far from the train station and they were able to get me set up with bike, helmet, lock and map easily. They gave me a few suggestions of places to go. I rode around the city for a bit and also out to the countryside which was beautiful. The bike infrastructure in the city in particular is really good, I felt quite safe on the roads. Bike was good quality and good value (especially compared to London prices!).

This Tour was the highlight of our weekend trip to Oxford. Our guide Jaye was really knowledgeable with a touch of humour. The pace was really relaxed. We explored parts of Oxford we would have never discovered if we had not been on this tour. Highly recommend Jaye as a guide and the rest of the team at Bainton Bikes.

Easy walk from the train station. I wanted a no-nonsense day rental of a standard bicycle. No problem renting, reasonable price and their flip book for a little more sightseeing tour out to Blenheim Palace did the job. Easy to work with and I had a great day. The construction on the Hwy made for some interesting crossings, but they are working on making it more bike friendly so I approve, rode home on the canal trail. Thanks guys!

This was just the right level for us. A 2 1/2 hour leisurely ride around Oxford. Our guide was great. Just the right level of information. We learnt some very interesting stuff about Oxford!
