WBUG is celebrating its 10th Anniversary - 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 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. 

In order to assist with catering, could you RSVP by close of business Fri 7 May 2021 to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. , advising numbers attending (adults, children) & any dietary requirements.

We hope to see you on the day to help celebrate the successes of the Whittlesea BUG in the 10 years.

Bicycle Networks - Swapping Seats

Last Updated on December 4, 2018
 

The 'Swapping Seats' intitative by Bicycle Network sets out to raise awareness about how people walking and riding should position themselves around trucks and heavy vehicles.

The blind spots of heavy vechicles and trucks block out a lot more of the road than people who ride bikes realise.

As part of Bicycle Network's 'Swapping Seats' campaign bike riders at Around the Bay were invited to sit in the drivers seat of a truck, to get an understanding of which parts of the road and road users a truck driver can see (the video below).

Bicycle Network has a full write-up including suggestions on how to be seen by large vehicles or trucks, which can be read at the link, https://www.bicyclenetwork.com.au/our-campaigns/swapping-seats/.
