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!
Check back with us soon for details about our next tour with elected officials!
October 6, 2022 - North Knoxville Greenways
On Thursday, October 6, Bike Walk Knoxville was thrilled to host a casual bike ride along the North Knoxville greenways for community members and local elected officials. We were joined by the Chairwoman of the Knox County Commission, Courtney Durrett, and the Knox County Board of Education representative for District 4, Katherine Bike. The tour was a great opportunity to highlight community resources and the importance of greenway connectivity, and we're thankful to everyone who came out and rode with us!
