Welcome to the Bribie Island Bicycle User Group website!

The Bribie Island Bicycle User Group (Bribie BUG) was formed to provide an outlet for locals to get together, have a good time, promote fitness and discover new places on Bribie Island and surrounding areas and now has about 90 members! Bribie Island IS the perfect place to cycle! It has beautiful beaches and the ideal subtropical climate. We also aim to address issues that need to be fixed in the community such as infrastructure, cycle awareness and improvement to cycle paths.


Bribie BUG's Ride Bribie Island 2019 event aims to get more riders riding more often and especially on Bribie Island. There is more information at the bottom of this page. Reserve Sunday October 27.


Do you or your bike need more exercise?


Bribie BUG has rides every Saturday morning, either on the island or to Ningi/Sandstone Point, leaving the Information Centre located on Benabrow Avenue, Bellara at 8.00am.

 

Rides take 2 to 3 hours (including coffee) and cover about 20-25km at a moderate pace to suit those participating.  All cyclists welcome. Contact Bob or Joyce Newell (3408 7743) or just turn up at the Information Centre before 8am. 


On Monday morning our 'Monday Ride' around Bribie leaves the Information Centre at 8am with additional pick-up points where riders can join us at 8.20am at Bribie Bridge and 8.30am at Bribie Jetty.  Halfway through the ride we choose either Woorim or Banksia Beach for coffee or the group may split up and go to both.


We also have an Early Birds ride on Wednesday mornings leaving the Information Centre at 6:30 am in winter (April to August) and 6:00 am in summer (September to March).  These are about an hour through the bush, beach, and streets of Banksia Beach with the option of coffee or the Laughing Group afterwards. Contact Joyce on 3408 7743 or email: Joyce.Newell@bigpond.com


We also often have other rides and social activities on and off the Island, which are publicised through our free email list.  Please send an email to bribiebug@yahoo.com.au if you would like to be added to this list.


We look forward to seeing you on a ride!


Next meeting: Contact the BUG for details on the next meeting. Meetings are generally held the second Thursday of the month at 7:30 pm at the Bribie Island Library.
 
Other upcoming Bribie BUG events: The Bribie BUG have organised some even more fantastic rides and events. Contact Bob Newell on 3408 7743 if you are keen to join on any of these!
