The way to go... You don't have to be an environmental activist to realise that traffic growth on our roads and in the air is causing huge environmental problems. We need to travel in a way that doesn't damage the environment or the communities we live in. Our dependence on motor transport is reducing our quality of life, so why not do something about it?
If you are a cyclist and wonder which route to take, please take a look at our maps.

Walking the original green exercise. Walking is the most eco friendly mode of transport in the world. Choosing to walk helps reduce traffic and harmful exhaust emissions, it's free, it's reliable (no waiting around), it improves your health, keeps you fit and helps to improve your mood and combat stress.
Well I Never...
The University has a Travel Plan which means we are trying to reduce staff and student car use and promote alternatives. Since 2000 the number of staff using their car to get to work has reduced by 16% to 39.9% and student car use has reduced from 14% to only 7% traveling by car.
"Using my bike to get around is quicker for most journeys and keeps me fit as well!"
