Our goal is to double the number of people biking and walking in Tennessee by 2020.
To achieve this goal, the Bike Walk Tennessee Board of Directors has developed and approved four core strategies. Our board and staff team work to advance these strategies though our work at the state level and through our regional committees.
Strategy #1: Create a network of high quality bicycle and pedestrian facilities and related multimodal infrastructure across Tennessee. Additionally we will support local municipalities in their requests for state and federal funding.
Strategy #2: Weave bicycling and walking into the cultural fabric of communities across Tennessee by producing the Tennessee Bike Summit in cities across Tennessee and promoting events and programs statewide.
Strategy #3: Protect people who walk and bike through educational efforts with law enforcement, motorists, and people who walk and bike. We will do that by partnering with law enforcement agencies and offering trainings and resources; Also by supporting local educational programs and pursuing funding for statewide campaigns.
Strategy #4: Increase the number of advocates and size of advocacy organizations across Tennessee. This will be accomplished by providing a scholarship for new attendees to the National Bike Summit and providing resources and guidance in the creation of local committees across the state.
