Every month there are about 30 people who meet to work on making Indianapolis more bicycle friendly by serving on the Indianapolis Mayor's Bicycle Advisory Council (IMBAC). I'm currently the Chair of IMBAC and Joan Cook is Secretary. 

The Indianapolis Mayor’s Bicycle Advisory Council (IMBAC) serves in an advisory capacity to local government on projects, policies and issues related to bicycle recreation, transportation and safety in Indianapolis. The Council works to support the efforts of the City of Indianapolis to provide a safe and connected bicycling environment.

IMBAC reviews and make recommendations on planning, design, and development of projects prepared by developers, city departments, and consultants affecting the use of bicycles. There are foru Standing Committees, based on the League of American Bicyclists' Bicycle Friendly Community program: Education/Encouragement, Equity/Evaluation, Engineering and Enforcement. 

Want to learn more? IMBAC meets on the 3rd Tuesday of the month, from 3-4:30 pm in The Hall (Old City Hall) at 202 N. Alabama, Indianapolis. Meetings are open to the public.
