Wollongong and Shellharbour Local Government Areas (LGAs) are places where everyone is able to safely ride a bike on roads, shared paths and separated paths for transport, recreation, wellbeing and social connection.


The Illawarra Bicycle User Group advocate for cycling to be the most attractive and inclusive mode of transport for everyone and actively help to better cycling and increase participation in cycling in the Wollongong and Shellharbour Local Government Areas by holding Councils and New South Wales Government accountable to their strategies and policies and best practice and through collaboration with others who are committed to an equitable, accessible and sustainable transport system. Our mission aligns with Bicycle NSW’s mission, “creating a better environment for all bike riders”.
