If you’d like to be more involved in the organisation and direction of UMBUG, please come along to the monthly UMBUG projects group meetings. We usually meet 12:30-13:30 on the first Tuesday of the month. Email for more information and the date and location of our next meeting. Issues discussed at meetings include:

  • event organisation (including the corridor Annual Cycle Event usually held in June);
  • UMBUG promotion and communication;
  • current cycling infrastructure and working with Estates;
  • campus cycling routes;
  • flexible cycling and promoting modal change from cars to bikes.
