Bike Walk Knoxville, a local nonprofit organization working to make the Knoxville region a better place to bike and walk for people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds, is thrilled to announce an upcoming Walk with Elected Officials on Thursday, April 18, 2024. The walk will begin promptly at 6:00 p.m. at the Third Creek Greenway Park on Sutherland Avenue (with parking available across the street at Vreeland Engineers, Inc.).

Bike Walk Knoxville’s tours with elected officials are a great opportunity to learn about how funding and policy impact infrastructure for biking and walking in our community as well as to engage with local elected officials, advocates, and community members on the important issue making our streets safe for all people. The tour will highlight greenway accessibility and connectivity, walkability for students at West High School, and neighborhood priorities for safe streets. We encourage participants to come prepared for the walk with proper shoes and a water bottle!
