Bicycle Users Geelong was created in 1995.
It was formed by the Barwon Regional Bicycle Council (BRBC) – this group would later create the Barwon region strategic bicycle plan.
Initiators were Bill Johnsen (Victorian Bicycle Advisory Committee), Greg Allerton, the late Ted Wilson. The group was supported by City of Greater Geelong officer and Bicycle coordinator Nicki Angus and Colin Kosky of Vic Roads who were part of the BRBC.
The local BUG group was established based on models from Melbourne, but well after the Geelong Bike Plan of 1977-82.
