What is TBug?

TBug is an incorporated not-for-profit organisation working towards building a strong cycling community whilst increasing cycle awareness and safety in and around the Tamar region.

Our activities range from organising social rides and bike maintenance workshops to representing cyclists in local government decisions regarding cycling infrastructure and lobbying at state and federal levels.

TBUG Committee


Committee members are elected at the Annual General Meeting, TBug usually in September.

The committee is responsible for managing everything we do. This includes governance and compliance, financial management, rides, social events, newsletters, websites and facebook, advocacy and alliance building.
