Welcome!

BayWest BUG is a Bicycle User Group covering the area of City of Hobsons Bay and City of Wyndham. We are a non-profit organisation dedicated to improving local conditions for cyclists.

For the path pedaller interested in fun, friends, and coffee, we do two social rides per month, suitable for most abilities. For the lycra-clad road warrior, we will do monthly road rides in the western suburbs if members are interested.
