The DuBois family boasts several generations of avid bicyclists and they have decided to pay it forward in Oxford.
They have recently donated $500,000 to the Oxford Community Foundation and created the Howard and Gwyn DuBois Family Fund for the purpose of helping the City of Oxford build more bike infrastructure in their community.
The City of Oxford has made a long-term commitment to bicycle infrastructure in its community by putting a 12-mile multi-use paved path in its comprehensive plan.
The city has successfully applied for grants and even passed a tax levy to help with the construction of this system of bike paths. The goal is to build the trail a segment at a time, with the entire 12 miles being completed by the year 2028.
