 Bicycles Unley
The City of Unley is committed to increasing the use of alternative forms of transport, particularly bicycles. Accordingly, Council has endorsed the formation of a Bicycle User Group (BUG) for the City of Unley, with a vision of increasing the percentage of bike users throughout the City.
We are inviting the community to be involved by becoming a BUG member.
The purpose of the BUG is to help:
  • Facilitate the development of cycling as a safe and effective transport option throughout the city of Unley
  • Promote cycling as a viable, effective transport option
  • Promote the health and social benefits of cycling
It is envisaged that the BUG would be involved in a number of activities including identifying:
  • Any safety and design issues with existing cycle routes in Unley
  • Potential gaps in Unley’s Bike network for investigation
  • Possible locations for bike racks.
  • Working with schools to develop a ride to school day
  • Organising social ride events for members and the community.
The first BUG meeting will be held at 6 - 7.30pm, 21 April 2015 at the Unley Community Centre, 18 Arthur Street, Unley SA 5061.

Any member of the community is invited to attend. It is proposed that a working group will be established to advise Council on cycling issues and to co-ordinate the activities of BUG members. If you wish to attend the meeting or to be in touch with the group by email, please email pobox1@unley.sa.gov.au or call Council’s Traffic Management Department on 8372 5111.
