The 26.1-mile Duke-Durham Cruise takes you on a delightful sight-seeing tour of Durham, home of Duke University. The ride begins in front of the famous Duke Chapel, winding through the West and then the East Campus before skirting the downtown area. It next heads north past the Museum of Life and Science, past numerous parks, and through different neighborhoods as it heads west. The route then curves through University Estates to historic Bennett Place. The longest single stretch follows North Carolina Highway 751 through Duke Forest on a North Carolina Scenic Byway that ends at Duke University’s West Campus. You can end the route here or do the extra loop through south Durham, returning via downtown and Ninth Street to the starting point.
