The Phillip Island Bicycle User Group (BUG) aims to look after the needs and welfare of local and visiting cyclists and to develop Phillip Island as a bicycle friendly area.
Phillip Island has a strong cycling community. The Bicycle User group is largely made up of older and mature riders and those that are new or returning to cycling. Therefore, we co-ordinate and conduct rides to suit all levels of cycling while promoting and encouraging cycling as a sport, exercise, and social activity.
The BUG advocates for improved cycling infrastructure through consultation with Bass Coast Shire Council, Bicycle Network, VicRoads and the Victorian Government.
The BUG also supports cycling in the community, by providing volunteers to assist with Bike Ed programs in schools across Bass Coast Shire, the Bass Coast Bike Ed Challenge and volunteers who escort students on Ride2School days. These activities are also supported by Victoria Police and Bass Coast Shire Council.
The BUG also provides volunteers to act as marshals at the Bass Coast Cycle Challenge - a community event that attracts riders from the Victorian cycling community.
There are weekly rides on the Island and every second weekend we have an Off Island ride.
This website provides specific details about cycling on Phillip Island and the surrounding areas, and details about who can be contacted for further information.
You can also keep up to date with our rides and activities on our Facebook page- Phillip Island Bicycle User Group.
