Created by the City Commission in 1990 with Resolution No. 2817, BABAB's purpose is to recommend safe bicycle practices throughout Bozeman in regard to enhanced bicycle circulation and design, community-wide bicycle education and safety programs, and other matters relating to bicycling in the Bozeman area. In March, 2010 the City Commission authorized Resolution No. 4246, authorizing the bike board to raise funds for the purpose of supporting activities for bike to work week and bicycle safety awareness and education. Then in December, 2010, they adopted Ordinance No. 1795 to confirm the additional duties and responsibilities set out in Resolution No. 4246. In addition, the board identified the need for members to represent the interests of the Montana State University student body, the Bozeman High School student body and the residents of Gallatin County. Ordinance No. 1795 provides for these membership additions. All of the Ordinances have been codified in Division 14 of the Bozeman Municipal Code.
