How Do We Partner with Cities?
City partnerships are how we embed the principles and mission of the Bicycle Action Committee in our communities. Our city partners help us reach actual members of the community, as well as identify opportunities for cyclist safety improvements and corporate sponsorships.
Each city partner we have also has their own special cycling shirt design. By purchasing your city’s shirt, you support the cause not only financially, but also when you ride! Scroll down to see your city’s shirt design.
Our City Partners
The City of Coral Gables’ Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan includes more than 27 miles of new or improved bikeways sidewalks and crosswalks. It recommends a comprehensive expansion and diversification of facilities to expand the demographics of residents who bicycle. As people increasingly choose to use a bicycle as a mode of transportation, vehicular traffic is reduced, balancing the transportation system and contributing to more vibrant and livable Coral Gables.
Beyond constructing a network of safe bikeways, education, encouragement and programming are playing a critical role in making Coral Gables more bike friendly.

VILLAGE OF PINECREST
The Village of Pinecrest adopted the Village Bicycling Plan, which was developed by the Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC), a resident committee, and approved by Village Council. This plan was based on an in-depth review of different options, and it details a two-phased approach to implementing a Comprehensive Bicycling Plan:
1. Implementation of Bike Routes to create a system that allows safe access throughout the Village.
2. Implementation of dedicated Bike Lanes along Select Roadways connecting the Village from East to West and North to South.
The proposed project will add bike lanes and bike routes throughout the Village to increase safety and promote connectivity along those roads that accommodate safe environment for sharing the roadway with vehicular traffic.
The City of South Miami adopted the South Miami Intermodal Transportation Plan (SMITP), which identified a coordinated set of phased multimodal improvements with a focus on pedestrian and bicycle mobility. The SMITP aims to enhance the pedestrian network of sidewalks, crossings, roadway improvements, shared use (bike-ped) facilities, and neighborhood greenways throughout the City, connecting residential areas with downtown shopping and dining, transit facilities (Metrorail and BRT) and M-Path. A main priority of the SMITP is to provide a safer environment for pedestrians, cyclists, and residents through infrastructure improvements. The plan was adopted in early 2015 and was funded by Metropolitan Planning Organization and People’s Transportation Plan.
In 2007, the Miami Beach City Commission adopted the Atlantic Greenway Network (AGN) Master Plan also known as the Bike Master Plan. This master plan was focused on internal connectivity for bicycles by way of a continuous network of on-street bicycle facilities, shared-paths, Beachwalks, and Baywalks, and on creating connections between the City network and the County’s and State regional bicycle network.
