Mission Statement

Recognizing the integral role of functional exercise in public health and environmental sustainability, BPAC is committed to promoting safe active transportation options through the five E’s, as defined by the League of American Bicyclists External Link:
  1. Engineering – provide a comprehensive network of safe routes for active (i.e., non-motorized) travel.
  2. Education – teach motorists, bicyclists, pedestrians, etc., to respect each other’s rights and observe the traffic rules necessary to safely share the roads.
  3. Encouragement – promote the shift of short trips and commutes from motorized to active travel to improve health, reduce congestion, and foster sustainability.
  4. Enforcement - ensure that existing traffic safety rules, such as posted speed limits, stop signs, and crosswalks, are consistently observed in all modes of travel.
  5. Evaluation – actively solicit public feedback and effectively address public concerns in order to expand participation in and benefits of active transportation.
