1st District Bike Tour!

The TN 01 Olsen for Congress bike tour begins in 5 days! Natalie and I will start Sunday evening in Johnson City at the Tweetsie Trailhead and bike to the Smokehouse Restaurant in Elizabethon. Monday, I’ll start in Hampton then bike to Mountain City. Over the course of the week, I’ll bike in all 12 counties of the district. For most of the trip, I’ll be on a bicycle, although traffic and safety concerns will mandate an occasional car ride.

I’m looking forward to a week of beautiful East Tennessee scenery and conversations with citizens throughout the district. I’ll be stopping at local businesses and family restaurants along the way. The bike tour will promote the beauty of our region and it’s potential for improved ecotourism and agritourism. I’ll also support local small businesses along the way and emphasize the need to ensure that these businesses in our region thrive and prosper.
