WBUG is celebrating its 10th Anniversary - 10am 23rd May 2021, you are invited to our 10th Anniversary Ride and BBQ
The Whittlesea Bicycle Users Group (BUG) committee invite you to our 10th Anniversary celebration of the forming of the BUG. We believe it’s only fitting we share this milestone.
Although the anniversary would have been in Feb 2020, COVID restrictions unfortunately prevented any type of celebration.
The event will take place at Norris Bank Reserve Bundoora on Sun 23 May at approx. 10 AM in the form of both a family ride & also BBQ with soft drinks and food being provided.
We are hoping you are able to join us for the event. Please bring your family & your bikes.
We hope to see you on the day to help celebrate the successes of the Whittlesea BUG in the 10 years.
“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving” – Albert Einstein.
Women's Bike Skill, Fun and Friendship program - Beginner Learn to Ride program - running from April 2021 and will conclude at the end of Jun 2021
Spreading the joy of riding a bike is a passion for Mara, one of our BUG members who also is a cycling coach.
With the support of a Community grant from the Whittlesea council, free learn to ride sessions for complete beginners have been made available to women in the local area.
The emotion and incredible sense of accomplishment can be seen in the smiling faces as the participants grasp that first moment of balance on two wheels.
Tears are not uncommon.
The "Beginner Learn to Ride program" has been running from April 2021 and will conclude at the end of June 2021.
A new 4 week "Women's Bike Skill, Fun and Friendship program" will commence on Tuesday 1st June, 2021 to further develop riding confidence on cycle paths and help create connections to existing riding groups in the community.
