The Los Angeles Bicycle Advisory Committee (BAC) was formed in 1974 by Mayor Bradley in order to address bicycling issues in the City of Los Angeles.

Today the BAC advises the Los Angeles Department of Transportation and Planning Department on issues relevant to bicycling for transportation and the implementation of the City’s Bicycle Plan. The BAC also advises the Department of Recreation and Parks on issues regarding recreational bicycling.

The BAC is comprised of members appointed by each of the Council members and the Mayor. The full BAC meets the first Tuesday of every even month (February, April, June, August, October, December) at 7pm. The BAC’s subcommittees (Advocacy and Education, Bikeway Engineering, and Planning) meet in the odd months.
