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!

Save the Date!


We are so excited to be back in person for the 2021 Tennessee Bike Walk Summit! The Summit will be hosted at Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee on September 30 and October 1.

We will continue to focus on biking and walking at the Summit, building on a commitment to creating streets that are safe and inviting for all people. The Summit is an incredible opportunity to network and learn, and we hope you'll join us!
