BrimBUG is a Bicycle User Group based in the City of Brimbank. We are a non-profit organisation, dedicated to improving local conditions for cyclists. We conduct free rides of varying levels every two weeks.

Report: After some minor repairs to a front cable/de-railleur we headed to Gels Park for morning coffee and then a great tail wind propelled our small group past Greens Rd to the Carrum area. Gravel trails through the Edithvale wetlands took us across to Mordialloc for lunch and then “train return” option. Distance covered – 50 klms
