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 TN Bike Walk 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 TN Bike Walk Summit is a valuable educational and networking experience. 

We believe that our communities are stronger and more economically vibrant when people walk and bike, and we are proud to continue to build on the success of the Tennessee Bike Walk Summit these past seven years, as we support a bright future for our great state.

2019 TN Bike Walk Summit

2019 marked our 8th annual Bike Walk Summit in Knoxville, TN. We gathered with individuals across the state to learn about trends in biking and walking, making biking and walking safer, and working with diverse community partners to have an impact on biking and walking. We got to enjoy beer and coffee at Vienna Coffee House, bike around downtown Knoxville, hear from elected officials, and we got an update on the state of bike/ped infrastructure and initiatives in Tennessee from the TDOT Deputy Commissioner/Chief of Environment and Planning, Toks Omishakin.
