Bicycle User Groups (BUGs)

What are Bicycle User Groups?

Bicycle User Groups, or BUGs, are groups of like-minded bike riders who gather together to go on social rides and advocate to improve bike riding conditions in their local area. There are hundreds of BUGs all around Australia who offer different types of rides, events and opportunities and allow you to come together to make your area a better place to ride.
