About the Bicycle Committee

The Cambridge Bicycle Committee, established by City Council in 1991, works to improve conditions for bicyclists in the City of Cambridge and promote bicycling as a means of transportation. Activities of the Committee include:

  • Reviewing City plans for road construction;
  • Commenting on pending bicycle-related ordinances;
  • Organizing and participating in public events;
  • Creating materials to encourage bicycling in the city, and
  • Working with other bicycling organizations at the local, state, and national level.

Committee Membership

The committee is made up of community members who take an active interest in bicycling issues in Cambridge, as well as City staff from the Community Development Department, the Department of Traffic, Parking, and Transportation, the Police Department, and the Department of Public Works.
