Durham Bicycle Users Group

Durham Bicycle Users Group (DBUG) was set up in 2006 as a forum for cyclists working in Durham City colleges and departments. We want to make it easier for people to cycle to work and encourage more people to use bikes around the University.

Cycling reduces pollution in our City. It reduces traffic on our roads and the number of cars crammed in on University grounds. Cycling is also fun, sociable and healthy: it’s cheaper than petrol, and quicker than walking. Even if you just walk your bike up the hills you will still get fitter (regular cyclists have the health of an average person ten years younger!) and enjoy a clean, efficient, and more relaxed form of transport.
