Advocacy

Bike Walk Knoxville is the local expert for bicycle and pedestrian safety and accessibility.  We advocate for all ages and abilities in the community to have safe and accessible streets for walking and biking; thus working to build a more walkable, bikeable, and livable City.  Through our advocacy programs, Bike Walk Knoxville works with communities to empower their voices for active transportation, with elected officials to enact smart policy changes, and with the Knoxville government to guide best practices in implementation.  Advocacy is one of three sub-committees of the Bike Walk Knoxville Advisory Committee.
