BU Bike User Group
Welcome to the Bournemouth University Bike Users Group or BUBUG!
Set up in 2004 we work hard to support cyclists at BU, whether for commuting, heath or leisure. Our main aims are;
BU has a number of covered, secure cycle lock –ups and a further large quantity of free-standing cycle lock ups across the two campuses and at most blocks of student residences. There are also showers and lockers so that you get refreshed after your ride; click here to see the campus maps with a full list of our facilities.
Cyclists can buy high quality D locks and front and rear bike lights at greatly reduced prices from the Students Union shops. Through out the year there are regular bike doctor sessions and a number of free training sessions from a CYTEC qualified mechanic on basic bike maintenance. Free maps of the area showing cycle paths are available too (click here for electronic versions of these maps).
This is free to all BU students and staff. As a member you will receive a free Hi Vis waistcoat and free membership of Dorset Cyclists Network. This will enable members to get discounts at many of the bike shops across Dorset.
If you're interested in becoming a member of BUBUG, or simply want to get some advice about cycling in the local area either contact us, or take a look at the useful information and links in this site.
