Our Values

We have a vision.
We are inspired by the potential of bicycling and walking to invigorate and transform the cities, communities and rural areas of Tennessee.

 

We are multi-modal.
We work for a balanced transportation system where every type user is accommodated, a philosophy defined as Complete Streets.

 

We are statewide.
We work hard to be an organization for all of Tennessee; for the large cities, smaller communities and rural areas.

 

We believe in the power of coalitions.
We embrace partnerships with civic, transportation, recreational, educational, social-change, health, environmental, business, development and community organizations.

 

We are grassroots.
We believe in the power of communities joined together in common purpose; from neighborhoods to the state house, we believe that individuals can work together to make a positive difference.
