Charlottesville Tomorrow published a portrait of BPAC in its June edition of "Community Perspective."
BPAC supports the West Main streetscape design adopted by City Council. Learn why by reading BPAC's Official Statement on the issue.
In April 2016, BPAC conducted a demonstration of bike- and ped-friendly wayfinding signs. Committee co-chair Jake Fox designed clear, colorful signs pointing the way to parks, schools, and public facilities--giving the estimated travel time to each destination on foot or on wheels. The wayfinding demonstration was part of much larger project to make Charlottesville's streets come alive. Read more about the initiative, in which BPAC played arole, on the Streets that Work website.
BPAC Member Chris Gist keeps a blog called Safe Cycling Charlottesville. To read his insightful articles, view pictures and videos, and contribute your own comments, click here.
