3rd June 2016Cyclists from the University of Dundee community, including its Rector, the world-renowned adventurer, Mark Beaumont, will receive Cycling Scotland's Cycle Friendly Campus Award with Distinction on Friday 3rd June, recognising the institution’s efforts to promote sustainable travel.
“Cycling Scotland has worked closely with the University of Dundee in working towards the Cycle Friendly Campus Award.
“The University has shown great commitment to getting more people cycling around campus and I look forward to working with the team in the future to ensure staff and students can travel confidently and conveniently to the campus.”
“Dundee was the starting point for my first ever pedal-powered adventure at the young age of 12, and I am very proud to come back as the Rector for this fantastic University and help accept this Cycle Friendly Campus Award. Through my own journeys, around the world and right here in Scotland, I aim to encourage as many people as I can to get outside and get cycling.
"The University of Dundee is rightly being recognised for not only promoting cycling but also making it as accessible as possible on campus. I cannot wait to get back in the saddle with our students and continue to promote life on two wheels!”
