Cycling at the University

Welcome to University of Aberdeen's Bicycle User Group (BUG). This is a place to bring together all cyclists (and people interested in cycling) at the University of Aberdeen so that we can improve the cycling experience for all.

We would love to hear your ideas about improving cycling at the University, either by posting a message on the Wall or getting involved in our events and consultations.

There are a range of facilities available to those with bicycles across the university's campus:
