The mission of Deschutes County Bicycle and Pedestrian Committee (BPAC) is to promote and encourage safe bicycling and walking as a significant means of transportation in Deschutes County. Its goals, which were revised in 2022, include:

The committee advises Deschutes County, the cities of Bend, Redmond and Sisters and the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) in bicycle and pedestrian transportation and matters pertaining to existing and proposed road construction and signing.

BPAC is also a source of current information relating to the use of bicycle and walking as a means of transportation and strives to support them as a viable means of transportation in Deschutes County.
