A Bicycle Master Plan (BMP) is a document that describes long-range planning for developing bicycle infrastructure in a city, with emphasis on designating and expanding bike routes, fostering a safe environment for cycling, and promoting bicycling as a viable transportation option.

A BMP usually details bike routes in the city, connecting bike lanes to create continuous, safe bicycling routes.

Many large cities have a BMP, including London,[1] New York[2] , Seattle,[3] and Los Angeles.[4]
