Every year, Bike Walk Tennessee organizes a statewide delegation to travel to Washington D.C. for the National Bike Summit. The Summit offers an opportunity for Tennessee advocates to network with other advocates from across the nation, and learn more about the latest developments in policy, infrastructure, and educational programs across the United States. The National Bike Summit also provides participants with an opportunity to talk with members of Congress about federal policy.
Tennessee has been participating in the National Bike Summit since its inception in 2001, with participants representing their constituencies across the state of Tennessee.
The 23rd Annual National Bike Summit will take place Sunday, March 27 - Wednesday, March 30, 2022. At the 2022 National Bike Summit, attendees will convene around the theme of Choosing Our Future.
The 2022 National Bike Summit will be a hybrid event, with online content and in-person programming available. All keynote speeches, plenary sessions, and panels will be online and accessible only through the virtual platform Whova. In person in Washington, DC, Summit attendees will be able to attend the virtual sessions, while also participating in workshops, bike rides, and other networking events. Lobby Day at the Summit will include virtual House of Representatives meetings for all attendees and in-person Senate meetings for in-person attendees.
Bike Walk Tennessee would like to see a strong representation of Tennesseans at the Summit, and encourages everyone invested in making our state a better place to bike and walk to attend. We are proud to have Bike Walk Tennessee Board Chair Dr. Caroline Cooley serving as the State Coordinator!
