Eynsham cycle path campaigners hold commuter challenge

A campaign group that pit cyclists against buses and cars on a route into Oxford has said the results demonstrate the need for a new cycle path.

An electric bike rider was the first to finish a seven-mile time trial between Eynsham and Queen Street earlier.

He completed the route in 22 minutes; the fastest bus user took 52 minutes.

Bike Safe chair Ian Leggett said although all the bikes came in before any car or bus user, people were "scared stiff" to use the route.
