Cycling is a good way to not only travel to the University but to explore Durham City and the surrounding area. It has many benefits including health, fitness, saves you money and reduces traffic and associated emissions on our roads. Even if you just walk your bike up the hills you will still get fitter and enjoy a clean, efficient, and more relaxed form of transport.

Did you know … regular cyclists have the health of an average person ten years younger! So why not consider taking up cycling today.
