It's all good there, but you are going to a tourist spot so it could get expensive.
But have fun if you do. Ride safe.

Hi Kriss,
thanks for your answer. We´ve booked a small cottage in advance, which is outside Nailsworth.
It´s not too expensive for british conditions.

Hi hankharmony,

sounds great. That´s what we love when ever we are in England, which is every other year.

Bourton on the water. Beautiful village, with its own famous model village, if you like that sort of thing.

Upper and lower Slaughter. Appallingly named villages, regularly win 'most picturesque village in England' competitions.

Oxford. Has a decent university :)-)), and plenty to see and do. If sunny, go punting on the Cherwell by Magdalen (pronounced more-d-lin).

Sounds like a fun trip. I visited England in 1993 for 3 days and had a great time. Sadly, I was without a bike, but I attended a vintage bike meet at an old WWII airfield outside of London. They had a drag strip set up on the runway and were running vintage bikes 1-on-1 by decade (a 1915 Triumph vs. a 1918 BSA for example). It was too cool and the folks attending couldn't have been nicer to this Texan. I'd love to return and tour the British Isles on a bike sometime.
