Bike Walk Knoxville hosts Bike and Walk Summer Tours with Elected Officials allowing community members to tour different Knoxville neighborhoods either on bike or on foot, while having a relaxed conversation with elected officials from Knoxville City Council and Knox County Commission. The chosen routes for the rides and walks show both the good and bad walking and biking facilities. There is an emphasis on how our current and proposed ordinances and regulations address sidewalk and bike facility construction. The tours provide participants an opportunity to engage with their elected officials in a relaxed setting ending at a brewery or restaurant where you can enjoy a cold beer!
Save the date! Join Bike Walk Knoxville, Mayor Rogero, and other Elected Officials for a walk on September 17th in South Knoxville from the planned connection from the Urban Wilderness to the proposed Gateway Park. Please check back for additional details!
Thank you to Coldwell Banker Wallace and Wallace for sponsoring the Summer Tour Series again for 2018!
Summer Tours in Action!
5/24/18 Leaving from Caswell Park, we kicked off our 1st Summer Tours Ride with Elected Officials and now know two ways to ride from Park Ridge to Edgewood Park. More greenway connections would make it more comfortable. Thanks to everyone who came out for the ride!
