Bicycle Commuting Workshops for Employees



The heart of Local Motion's Bike Commuter program consists of three core elements:

  1. "Getting Into Bicycling" workshops
  2. "Building Street Skills" learning rides
  3. One-on-one coaching

We work with employers to design a custom package that gives employees what they need to incorporate bike commuting into their routine.  To schedule a workshop or ride, contact Mary Catherine Graziano at This email address is being protected from spambots.

A typical training series begins with one or several classroom-style workshops.
Every workshop includes practical tips and opportunities for hands-on learning, with clothing and gear, current-model bikes, and other “touch and feel” items. Participants are sent away with clear, concise handouts that outline the key points from each workshop. Participants also receive a packet of useful coupons and brochures to help them get started with bike commuting.


Learning rides are an essential complement to the workshops.
Participants are taken on a guided ride on streets or roads that would be typical of their ride to work. The ride leader narrates the ride, verbalizing the internal decisions that an experienced rider makes on an ongoing basis. The ride ends with a question-and-answer session.


The final key piece in bike commuter training for employees is one-on-one coaching.
Commuting by bike for the first time can be a big leap for many people. Our customized program of phone and email support and guidance prepares each participant for his or her first ride, helping with gear selection, route planning, and picking of a date for a first ride. For a very modest flat fee per employee, we guarantee that each participant will take the crucial step of actually making a first commute by bike.  

All workshops, learning rides, and coaching services are FREE for Vermont employers thanks to VTrans and the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission!
