In 2013, the Town of Bel Air issued a Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan for Bel Air. Through this study, the town set out to strengthen the pedestrian connectivity and reinforce alternative modes of transportation such as cycling in town. Following the study, the town developed a bicycle map/brochure and made improvements to signage, markings, signals, and crosswalks. The bicycle plan proposes many improvements to the cycling conditions of the town.

The Bel Air Downtown Alliance, in partnership with The Town of Bel Air, has created a project called Bike Bel Air which with the goal of installing multiple bike racks at designated spots as indicated in the 2013 Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan.

The initial phase of Bike Bel Air will begin with 7 bike racks placed throughout Downtown Bel Air and a sculptural rack located at the center of downtown. The 7 bike racks are sponsored by Bel Air Athletic Club, Healthy Harford, Mike Leaf Esquire and Frederick Ward Associates.

A pre-bid meeting for the RFP sculptural bike rack is scheduled to take place at 3pm on Monday, March 27 in the upstairs conference room at the Bel Air Armory located 37 N. Main Street, Bel Air, MD 21014.
