Welcome to South Lanarkshire Council's Bicycle Users Group (BUG). The BUG is for everyone who cycles to work, cycles in their spare time or those who like to do more cycyling.
As part of Scotland's Healthy Working Lives Programme South Lanarkshire was awarded 'Cycle Friendly Employer Award in 2016' and to date 4 premises have been awarded 'Cycle Friendly Workplace'. There are plans to have more assessed as we are committed to making cycling as easy as possible for our staff.
The Cycle2work scheme has been offered to staff since 2012 and Dr Bike has made many visits to Headquarters to carry out bike checks and offer staff advice on bike maintenance.
On the BUG users can use the 'Wall' to share cycling routes, discuss ideas and give hints and tips on cycling. Users can also find out the latest news and events by clicking the links.
Sustainable South Lanarkshire supports the BUG and recognises the real potential for staff to reduce their carbon footprint by cycling more at the same time benefitting the environment by reducing transport emissions.
