Bicycling Ambassadors

Want to help improve bike safety in Knoxville? Do you like talking topeople? Be one of the first Bicycling Ambassadors in town!

Ambassadors encourage bicyclists to ride more often and more safely, and educate motorists on the rules of the road. Ambassadors attend community events and Bicycle Program events to teach bike safety, sharing the road, greenway etiquette and how to bike to work and school. Our message is conveyed through face-to-face interaction allowing for a conversation targeting the specific interests, questions and needs of each individual.

Training is provided. After you meet a certain number of volunteer hours, you'll receive an awesome thank you gift. ($50 gift card for first threshhold, then $100 after another!)
