The Mayor’s Provo Bicycle Committee is a citizen group that works on bicycle advocacy and education issues in the city.
Some of the past accomplishments of the Provo Bicycle Committee include: spearheading Provo’s recognition as a Bicycle-Friendly City, advocating for and contributing heavily to the Provo City Bicycle Master Plan, running Bike Month and Bike-to-School Week events, advocating for improved bicycle infrastructure and funding (the creation of a network of lanes across the city, improvements and added signage on the Provo River Trail, and dozens of other examples), coordinating with BikeUtah on events and legislation, providing education about bicycle safety and laws, and running dozens of events throughout the city.
Provo Bicycle Committee meetings are generally held on the first Thursday of each month from 5-6pm at the Community Policing building in downtown Provo (333 West 100 South) in the second-floor conference room of the Community Development building. Attendees often include representatives from city Engineering, Parks and Rec, Provo Police Department, the Provo City Council, the Utah County Health Department, Utah Valley Hospital, and more.
