Countdown to TN Bike Summit: Video tour and tips getting around

It's almost here! We are just one week away from our 6th annual statewide Bike Summit. 

Here are some nuts and bolts.

Hopefully it's old news now, the Summit has moved to Mud Island River Park (click for details)! Thank you again to the Riverfront Development Corporation for their support with the re-location.

Bike Walk Tennessee President, Anthony Siracusa, did a walk-through and video tour to share with you.

Watch the Facebook Live recording here.

Location notes 

If you follow this link, you will find the Google Maps location for Mud Island. This will get you over to the Island, at which point you will want to head to Harbor Landing (pictured below).

How to enter Pedestrian Bridge  


If all goes as planned, the bike-pedestrian bridge will be open for the duration of the Summit (we are working diligently on this), making it easy to walk or bike there.
You can enter the bike-ped bridge in the space between City Hall and the Federal Building on Main Street - where all the international flags are located (towards the back of the photo above).

Traveling by car? 
  • Drive over to Mud Island (that Google map link again)
  • At the traffic circle, take a left
  • Let the security guard know you are here for the TN Bike Summit
  • Park in the lot pictured here, as relative to Harbor Landing
