A Bicycle User Group (BUG) is a group of people who are keen to improve cycling conditions and opportunities in their local area. A BUG works closely with Local Government to make it safer and more convenient for cyclists to navigate the cycle paths and roads.

Bicycle User Group (BUG) members range from regular commuter cyclists to occasional recreational bike riders, and vary in size and purpose. They may meet on a regular basis for social rides or to work out strategies to improve cycling in their community, building or campus. Some BUGs organise 'Bike to Work' days or other promotional activities.

BUGs can be a valuable resource for local governments. They help to promote and improve cycling facilities and help foster enthusiasm for cycling in their community.
