What are Tours with Elected Officials?
Bike Walk Knoxville hosts Bike and Walk 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 dinner and/or a cold drink!

May 10, 2022 - Burlington, East Knoxville
On Tuesday, May 10, Bike Walk Knoxville was proud to lead local elected officials, candidates, and community members on a walking tour of the Burlington area of East Knoxville. We were joined by City Councilwoman Lauren Rider, County Commissioner Dasha Lundy, Knox County Board of Education candidate Annabel Henley (District 9), and Knox County Commission candidate Dylan Earley (At-Large Seat 10). The tour was an incredible opportunity to learn more about how improving walkability can make a community safer and more economically productive.
