Bike Month Video Contest

Bike Month 2015 is just around the corner! We're not ready to list the all the classes, events, and rides yet, but we do have  a video contest to get you in the mood to celebrate the best month of the year.

Tennessee Bike Summit

Knoxville is hosting the Tennessee Bike Summit April 23-24.

We invite anyone interested in promoting bicycling and making bicycling safer to attend. The conference is a gathering of advocates, engineers, planners, public health officials, researchers, retailers, and elected officials. The event is a chance to discuss how to build safe roads, strong communities, and a Tennessee where everyone is able to enjoy the benefits of bicycling and walking. The keynote speakers are incredible - Gil Penalosa and Martha Roskowski! Early bird registration is available now. http://www.tnbikesummit.org/

BIKESAFE Update

FHWA recently completed its update to the Bicycle Safety Guide and Countermeasure Selection System, commonly known as BIKESAFE, to reflect the latest research and best practices surrounding designs for bicycle safety. The website also offers PEDSAFE, which provides practitioners with the latest information available for improving the safety and mobility of those who walk. An online Countermeasure Selection Tool asks for simple input about a problem location and then provides a list of potential treatments and programs that could improve safety.
