FAQ

What is burbing?

Burbing(verb)

The act of cycling, running or walking down every single road in a suburb or other defined area


Why burbing?

Call burbing what you want: a fun way to discover all that exists in your neighborhood, a triumphant adventure, or just a stupid waste of time. Burbing emerged during the coronavirus pandemic as a way to traverse long distances while staying close to home. Kudos to Cameron James for coining the term.


Who made this site?

I'm Riley, a teenage runner and cyclist from upstate New York. During quarantine, I wrote a program for myself to find the fastest route down every street in my village. Later, I found out about burbing, and decided to make a website so that others can make their own route.
