Tennessee Bike Walk Summit

September 30 @ 4:00 pm - October 1 @ 4:45 pm

The 2021 Tennessee Bike Walk Summit will be hosted on September 30 and October 1 at Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee. The Summit brings together cyclists and pedestrians, advocates, planners, engineers, and elected officials from across the state to share resources and best practices related to bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure, funding, education, outreach, and policy. Through a series of keynote presentations, breakout sessions, and mobile workshops, the Summit is a valuable educational and networking experience.​ We look forward to the Keynote Address from Michael Kelley of BikeWalkKC.

In 2012, Bike Walk Tennessee organized the first ​Tennessee Bike Summit​ in Chattanooga, Tennessee. More than 125 Tennesseans gathered in Chattanooga to discuss topics ranging from regional planning to bicycle encouragement programs like “Ride to Work” day. Since then, the Summit has visited every major city in Tennessee and has grown into an annual event that regularly brings together cyclists, advocates, planners, engineers, and elected officials from across the state to share resources and best practices related to bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure, funding, education, outreach, and policy. In 2018, Bike Walk Tennessee expanded the focus of the Summit to also include walking, changing the name to the Tennessee Bike Walk Summit. We will continue to focus on walking AND biking at our annual Summit, building on a commitment to building streets that are safe and inviting for all people. We believe that our communities are stronger and more economically vibrant when people walk and bike, and we are proud to build on the success of past Summits – success made possible by our sponsors (https://www.bikewalktn.org/sponsors) – as we support a bright future for our great state.

The 10th annual Tennessee Bike Walk Summit will be held on September 30 and October 1 at Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee. The goal of the Summit is to bring together people who care about making our streets safer for all – particularly those who walk and bike. Through a series of keynote presentations, breakout sessions, and mobile workshops, the Summit is a valuable educational and networking experience.​ ​Folks will have the opportunity to share resources and build partnerships to establish a network that is capable of doing great things across the state. The Summit facilitates collaboration on topics including measuring economic and health benefits of walking and biking, sharing trends in bike and pedestrian safety, and showcasing innovative infrastructure design.

We look forward to seeing you in Cleveland, Tennessee!
