In 1989, Hennepin County established an advisory group, called the Bicycle Advisory Committee (BAC) to assist the Board of Commissioners and county staff with ideas on how to incorporate bicycle accommodations into roadway and transit projects.
Each Hennepin County Commissioner appoints one voting member and one alternate member to serve for a three year term. The BAC also has a number of ex-officio members that represent other government agencies in Hennepin County. A number of the members are affiliated with area biking organizations and advocacy groups such as the Twin Cities Bicycle Club, Minnesota Coalition of Bicyclists, The Cedar Lake Park Association, and The Midtown Greenway Coalition.

The BAC meets on a monthly basis at various locations around Hennepin County. Discussion items include the status of current projects, bicycle issues, and planning studies. A bicycle tour of the local area sometimes follows each meeting.
