BPAC members are appointed by the Board of County Commissioners. The 13-person committee promotes and encourages safe bicycling and walking as a significant means of transportation in Deschutes County.

The committee advises Deschutes County and regional jurisdictions on a variety of bicycle and pedestrian transportation matters including proposed road construction, signing, and special projects.

BPAC generally meets from noon to 1:30pm on the first Thursday of the month from September to June. Committee members serve in a volunteer capacity and are not paid for their time.
