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.

Latest news...

Sunday 8 March 2015. Social ride – Altona to Seabrook & return.
For something different we will today meet at the Altona Pier at 12.00 noon and ride to Cath’s for a BBQ lunch. For this ride you will need to BYO salad and drinks, maybe something you can share with your fellow riders. The return trip to Altona will only see about 20 Km’s covered but after Cath’s BBQ, that should be plenty.

Friday 20 March 2015. BayWest BUG dinner.
Our first dinner for this year will be held at Thai on Charles, 88 Charles Street, Seddon, https://www.facebook.com/ThaionCharles starting at 7.00pm.

Sunday 18 January 2015. Social ride – Altona to Sanctuary Lakes & return.
Our first ride of the New Year will be an easy flat ride for all those who have been eating too much and have not been on their bike for a while. We will meet at the Altona pier to leave at 9.00am. We will follow the path west along the BayWest Trail to the bridge over Skeleton Creek and cross over. Once over the bridge we will follow the road through Sanctuary Lakes to the café on the lake for coffee and a bite to eat. Once re-fuelled, we will return back to Altona. This will be a reasonably short but pleasant ride at approximately 25 kms.
