Summer Tours with Elected Officials



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!  

9/17/18 - Walk with Elected Officials POSTPONED
Due to poor weather and trail conditions, this evening's Walk with Elected Officials has been cancelled and will be rescheduled.  Please check back for the new date!

Mark your calendar!  Join Bike Walk Knoxville, Mayor Rogero, and City Council members for a walk in South Knoxville on September 17th at 5:30pm.

Discover the connection from the planned Gateway at the James White Parkway terminus to the Urban Wilderness. After the walk, we will head over to SO KNO Taco Cantina for food and beverage.

All you need to bring is yourself, comfortable shoes and a few neighbors or friends!

Thank you to Coldwell Banker Wallace and Wallace for sponsoring the Summer Tour Series!


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!
