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, advocates, planners, engineers, and elected officials from across the state to share resources and best practices related to bicycle 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 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!
Given the uncertainties surrounding COVID-19 and the unknown of what this fall will look like, we are sad to announce that we will be canceling the TN Bike Walk Summit, scheduled for September 24-25, 2020 in Cleveland.
We were optimistic that we could move forward with this event; however with so much unknown at this time and the amount of planning it takes for the Summit to take place, it is just not going to be possible.
We are disappointed that we will not be gathering for this valuable educational and networking experience in 2020, however we will be back in Cleveland, TN in Spring 2021! Thank you for your understanding during these uncertain times. We hope you stay safe and healthy!
