Reconnect – Seniors Festival 2022

As a part of the NSW Government’s 2022 ‘Reconnect’ Seniors Festival (March 25 – 3rd April 2022), the Kiama Bicycle User Group (KBUG) is offering the opportunity for recent or long-term retirees to discover the joys and benefits of cycling as a leisure activity.
Cycling on path
The Kiama BUG organises regular social rides in the local area.
A special introductory ride will be held on Tuesday 29th March to share the local riding experience with others in the community.
