The Bicycle Advisory Committee
The Bicycle Advisory Committee (BAC) was established in 2008, and provides an opportunity for residents and organizations to discuss upcoming bike facility projects, plan events that bring cyclists together, and bring attention to issues. The committee meets the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 8:30 a.m. at the City Services Center (500 15th Avenue SW).
Members include City traffic engineering and police department bike patrol staff, bike shop owners and managers, bike club members, and a local League of American Bicyclists Cycling instructor. The Committee’s goal is for the City of Cedar Rapids to become a Bicycle Friendly Community.
The City Council approved Action Plan is the City’s guide to becoming a Bicycle Friendly Community. The Action Plan includes action items in all of the 5 E's categories. The Comprehensive Trails Plan (CTP) will incorporate the Action Plan and the Priority Trails Plan.
