A Bicycle User Group (BUG) is a community-based group, set up by bike riders.
There are three main types:
Local BUGs: These are usually defined by a geographical area e.g. council based
Workplace BUGs: Are based in a workplace e.g. hospital, government department or business park.
Campus BUGs: Can be based in a place of education e.g. University/TAFE College.
BUGs often arrange and participate in social rides. They also provide a forum for cyclists to meet and discuss local bicycle issues while working with the local government to improve cycling conditions. Because of their local knowledge, they can be effective in working with planners and decision makers.
Please email us if you know of any BUGs that are not listed here, or if you are thinking of starting a BUG yourself.
