Cardinia Shire bicycle users group (BUG)


Cycling is a wonderful way to get fit and healthy, whilst making some great friends along the way.


Cardinia Shire BUG was started in 2013 to develop a culture of bicycling and a community of cyclists within Cardinia Shire. There are a variety of rides available to suit everybody’s needs. We welcome riders who may not have been on their bikes for a while, who want to build up their skills in a safe and social environment. Our group also suits people who want to push themselves to the next level.

The group meets every Saturday morning and the first Sunday of the month. During the daylight savings period we also ride on Wednesday evenings. There is an annual membership of $20 per rider.

Become a member of the group by completing this membership form.

You will also need to complete the emergency contact form.
