Welcome to the University of Leeds Bicycle Users' Group (BUG)
We are a network of staff and postgraduate research students who enjoy cycling to work.
We promote cycling as a quick, inexpensive, healthy, safe and environment-friendly form of transport.
We meet approximately once a term to share best practice and update ourselves with developments on and off-campus. An email network is also used to make announcements and debate issues informally. Topics of interest include parking, security, road safety, and cycling in Leeds.
If you are interested in cycling to work, or just wish to find out more, do feel free to join us!

Here are a few links. A much longer list appears in the BUG 'Links' Page (or click on the RH tab at the top of this page).
