Bike Bus

On this page:

What is a bike bus?

A bike bus is a small group of people who ride to work together each day, for sociability and safety. We ride legally, taking a lane and riding two-abreast. The route is chosen to be on the quieter back streets for most of the way, until we reach the CBD. We take a social pace (average 15kph) so we can chat. If the bike bus times and routes don't suit you, email us at massbug # at # to go on our bike bus list and if we can find a few people with the same rime/route we'll let you know. (Replace # at # with @)
