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.
