On Monday, August 12th, 6 p.m., Knoxvillians are invited to join Bike Walk Knoxville as we walk with current elected officials, as well as mayoral and council candidates! We will walk approximately 1.6 miles round-trip along the scenic Northwest and Victor Ashe Greenways from Northwest Middle School to Victor Ashe Park. The primaries are coming up at the end of August so this is a perfect opportunity for elected officials, candidates and community members to discuss issues and give people the opportunity to get to know who is running and their positions on community issues in a relaxed setting.
We encourage folks to wear walking shoes and bring water – there are no water fountains. Parking for the walk will be located behind Northwest Middle School on Walpine Ln. 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.
The sponsor for this event is Coldwell Banker, Wallace and Wallace Realtors.
