In May of 1999, the Rockville Bicycle Advisory Committee (RBAC) was created by the Mayor and Council. The committee's mandate for action includes the following tasks:
  • Assist in the development of the City's bicycle and pedestrian specific policies, as well as other policies that affect the conditions for bicycling in the City
  • Oversee the implementation of the City's Bikeway Master Plan and report progress toward completion to the Mayor and Council
  • Review current and proposed CIP projects to ensure bicycle needs are incorporated into design and construction when appropriate
  • Deliver updates on the needs and desires of bicyclists in the community, with recommendations for action to the Mayor and Council

The committee represents a broad range of bicyclist types. Since its creation, RBAC has held regularly scheduled meetings throughout the year, carried out its mandated tasks, and has become an important and valuable resource to the City on bicycling issues. The active participation of RBAC is vital to Rockville's continued success in implementing the Bikeway Master Plan and in improving conditions for bicycling in the City.

Several members of RBAC worked closely with the City to develop the final recommendations for the 2004 Rockville Bikeway Master Plan. This committee provided input on the facility and programmatic improvements that are needed over the next 10 years and commented on the new Rockville Bicycle map.

The City of Rockville bike map is now available!
