Working to build a more walkable, bikeable, and livable Nashville.

About Us

Since 1998, Walk Bike Nashville has sought to make active transportation an option for Nashvillians, no matter where they live or where they're trying to go.  We want our sidewalks and bikeways to support active living, additional commuting options, and recreational opportunities.  We use a mix of educational programs focused on safety and skills and membership outreach focused on advocacy to pursue our goals.
