TN Bike Walk Summit

 

In 2012, Bike Walk Tennessee organized the first ​Tennessee Bike Summit​ in Chattanooga, Tennessee. More  than 125 Tennesseans gathered in Chattanooga to discuss topics ranging from regional planning to bicycle  encouragement programs like “Ride to Work” day. Since then, the Summit has visited every major city in Tennessee and has grown into an annual event that regularly brings together cyclists and pedestrians, advocates, planners, engineers, and elected officials from across the state to share resources and best practices related to bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure, funding, education, outreach, and policy. Through a series of keynote presentations, breakout  sessions, and mobile workshops, the Summit is a valuable educational and networking experience.​ ​In 2018, Bike Walk Tennessee changed the focus of the Summit to also include walking, changing the name to the  Tennessee Bike Walk Summit ​and will continue to focus on walking AND biking at our annual Summit; this  grows from a commitment to building streets that are safe and inviting for all people.

We are thrilled to bring the 2022 Tennessee Bike Walk Summit to Franklin, Tennessee! On Thursday, October 20, there will be a bike ride around Franklin and a networking social. The Summit will take place at the Williamson Campus of Columbia State Community College on Friday, October 21.

 

We believe that our communities are stronger and more economically vibrant when people walk and bike, and we are proud to build on the success of past Summits, as we support a bright future for our great state!
