The mission of the Opelika Bicycle Advisory Committee is for Opelika to be recognized as a Bicycle Friendly Community. The Opelika Bicycle Advisory Committee, serving the City of Opelika, is committed to working with the designated coordinators to ensure implementation of the 2021 Bicycle/ Pedestrian Masterplan. The Opelika Bicycle Advisory Committee accomplishes its mission by pursuing the Bicycle Friendly Community designation and promoting opportunities for bicycle pathways, bicycle recreation and bicycle transportation as they arise.
Bike Infrastructure like bike racks and public repair stations are visible proof of a community’s support for travel and recreation on bikes. As Bike Month (May) approaches, Opelika has much to celebrate. On Tuesday May 4th, Mayor Fuller will make the traditional Bike Month Proclamation. OBAC hopes to have a crowd of bike enthusiasts at the same City Council Meeting when the Bike/Ped Master-plan will be adopted and our 2021 Bicycle Friendly Community Recognition will be announced. If selected, OBAC would like to channel citizens’ excitement by soliciting donations for 2 “Dero” Public Bike Repair Stations. Each station has a bike stand, tools and an air pump. Logos signifying City of Opelika, OBAC or Bronze Bicycle Friendly Community can be applied commemorating the City’s 2021 achievements creating a useful trophy.
