Biking has become immensely popular, not just as a commuting choice, but as a better way to enjoy everyday activities. The City of Huntsville is working to become a more bicycle-friendly city to offer residents and visitors a fun and friendly way to experience all the community has to offer.
Bicycle Advisory and Safety Committee (BASC)
The Huntsville Bicycle Advisory and Safety Committee (BASC) is an organization that provides knowledge about cycling to advance education, enable planning, encourage cycling, and develop safe transportation facilities in the Huntsville area. It is made up of members of Huntsville’s cyclist community that have come together to offer counsel to the City and to generate public awareness and support for this initiative.
The BASC meets regularly. Contact Bike@HuntsvilleAL.gov for more information.

Bicyclists are great for the local economy too, because they support local business. Since most people bike shorter distances than they travel by car, they’re more likely to stop and shop locally. That means more tax revenue and local employment opportunities for our community.
