Bicycle User Groups

Bicycle User Groups (BUGs) are a useful way to create an informal group of employees to lobby for better cycling facilities. They are often employer specific but also work at universities or schools with a mixture of students and staff.

BUG groups can decide what facilities or improvements would encourage more cycling and put together proposal for management, with some ideas of costs and the benefits that the improvements will bring. Employers may not know about free or reduced price cycle parking from local government or Cycle to Work schemes.
