Welcome to our page of ads all about bikes and cycling. Here you'll find second-hand mountain, road, town, hybrid, bmx, and electric bikes for sale, plus regular ads for cycling accessories, including lights and locks. You may find exercise bikes here, but they'll probably be on our Sports Equipment page. Click here for useful cycle links, including the Oxford page of a nationwide stolen bike noticeboard. If you don't want to buy a used bike, or can't find the service you're looking for on this page, there are many fine bicycle shops dealing in new bikes, repair work, bike hire and even cycle training. See our guide to them here.

Your ad goes up immediately in the free section and is transferred to the paid section at the top of the page later the same day.
The cost per insertion is 50p/word, with a minimum charge of £5.
One insertion gives you one week online and one edition of our printed version. Discounts are available for 3 or more insertions.
These produce even better results. Prices start at £30 for a 3cm deep x 6.8cm wide (150 x 340px) display ad (that's about 30 words and a logo). You can make your ad larger in increments of £10/cm (/50px). Each increment provides space for about 12 more words). A double column ad is twice the price but just over twice the width (you gain the 'gutter' space between the columns).
