Membership Membership is free to both staff and students and all BUBUG members also receive automatic free membership to the Dorset Cyclists Network and can therefore access DCN discounts and benefits from local retailers.

Events & Meetings

BUBUG will be running events in partnership with the BU Sustainability and Health and Wellbeing Teams throughout the year. There are also a number of cycling events taking place on campus aimed at increasing cycling amongst student and staff populations, to increase awareness of facilities on campus, provide free bike safety checks, improve cyclists confidence and highlight the fantastic opportunities for cycling in the local area.

To keep up to date with events please keep an eye on the BU Sustainability Team Facebook Page and Twitter account.


BUBUG members are able to access a wealth of discounts at local participating retailers through their free DCN membership.
