Tours with Elected Officials

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!

August 16, 2021 - Walk with City Council Candidates

Join us on August 16th for a walking tour of North Knoxville with local elected officials, including candidates for City Council! We will meet at Schulz Brau Brewing Company at 6 pm. This is a great opportunity to learn more about how policy and funding choices made at the local level can impact walkability in our communities, and to connect with the elected officials who make those decisions.
