From Boroondara BUG
Boroondara Bicycle Users' Group (BBUG)
The Boroondara BUG (BBUG) is a voluntary group working to promote the adoption of a safe and practical environment for utility and recreational cyclists in the City of Boroondara. We have close links with the City of Boroondara, Bicycle Network, and other local Bicycle Users Groups (BUGs). Two of the positions on the Boroondara Bicycle Advisory Committee (BBAC), which meets quarterly, are assigned to Boroondara BUG members.
