Starting point


From the Botanical Gardens we will cycle through the University grounds to enjoy the flora and fauna in some of the ponded and landscaped areas. We will then visit Howlands, South College and adjoining landscaped areas and observatory hill, before returning to our start point.
This is a short ride with our expert ecologist Julia, and we will be repeating this regularly to chart the changing landscape and botany in Durham over the Spring and Summer.

Starting from the car park area of the Botanic Gardens we will cycle on cycle path and quiet roads around the city

Most of the route is traffic free, although there will be other cyclists and some pedestrians

We will be stopping to look at flora at 4 locations around the city

Helmets are always advisable, we also recommend clothing suitable for the weather. A drink and puncture repair kit and pump. Social distancing will be in place so please ensure that you do not bring anything to share. We also recommend that you bring a bike lock, as we will be stopping at various locations.

We especially welcome newbies!
