Newcastle University Bike Users Group

The Newcastle University Bicycle Users’ Group (NUBUG) is a cycling advocacy group, which seeks to promote cycling for fun, camaraderie, sport and transport.

We cooperate with other cycling and bike groups who share a mutual interest.

By broadly representing people who ride to university, we aim to encourage The University of Newcastle and Government Authorities to provide more infrastructure to support cycling.

NUBUG aims to promote safe cycling, sustainability, convenience, economic welfare, fitness and health and to eliminate environmental pollution.

NUSA Environment Collective - Ride a Bike Campaign

The Newcastle University Students' Association, Enviro Collective is the student environmental group on The University of Newcastle campus. In mid 2009 the Enviro Collective began the Ride a Bike Campaign to encourage bike use over car use among the Uni community. Riding a bike has minimal environmental impact, does not produce green house gasses or toxic emissions, does not produce noise pollution, is far cheaper than driving a car and it is easier to find somewhere to park your bike. Parking on campus for a year costs more than the price of many new bikes and decent second hand models.

Newcastle University Bike Users Group

Bike Love Corral has attended the Orientation Week at the University of Newcastle and helped with the stall for Newcastle University Bike Users' Group.

Students, staff, alumni and riders who visit campus all have an interest in the success of this group to lobby for better bike facilities like bike paths, bike racks, lockers and showers on campus plus better cycleways that link campus to the rest of Newcastle. Feel free to join if you have an interest in cycling for utility, advancing and promoting cycling and cycling facilities, cycling for recreation, fitness, sport, environment, community, protest or just plain fun in or in connection with The University of Newcastle.

Members of NUBUG are encouraged to network and promote bike activities that interest them and their peers. Maybe that could involve a social ride with a picnic, or a sweaty fast sports ride, or a mountain bike bush ride - its up to them and maybe you if you want to join. Membership costs only $2. Membership enquiries can be made by emailing NUBUG or visit the Bike Love Corral at NUBUG or one of the NUBUG meetings.

If you want to join the mailing list everyone is welcome. Members are subscribed to the mailing list by NUBUB moderators shortly after joining.
