Did you know Salt Lake County has a vibrant group of volunteers dedicated to biking?

The Bicycle Advisory Committee (SLCBAC), formed in 2001, has grown into a robust group supporting local biking nonprofits and transportation projects to improve access and safety for all residents hopping on a bike across Salt Lake County.

SLCBAC recently funded the installation of new caution signs on the popular Bobsled Mountain Bike Trail that extends from the Bonneville Shoreline Trail in Salt Lake City.

Members Alex Degnan and Mike Mikhalev worked with Salt Lake City and the Salt Lake Valley Trails Society to put up the signs in mid-April to help hikers recreating near the trail to be aware of bikers.

Leading SLCBAC as chair is Blair Tomten, an engineer specializing in design of bike lanes. SLCBAC believes bicycling is a healthy and beneficial mode of transportation and advises the Mayor on opportunities to improve bicycle commuting and recreation in Salt Lake County.

SLCBAC is currently seeking members to represent County District 2 (Magna, West Valley, South Jordan, Herriman). The Committee meets every second Wednesday each month from 5:30–7 p.m.
