Thank you for helping us grow a culture of walking and biking in Vermont!
Your support will sustain infrastructure campaigns across the state and many other equally important programs and initiatives, from Bike Smart to the Bike Ferry.
Here's a quick look at some of what we were up to in 2019:
- Supported 7 pop-up demonstration projects in 6 counties
- Partnered with Chittenden County Regional Planning on a regional bike-count program to gather data on infrastructure needs and uses
- Provided technical assistance to 24 towns
- Held 33 workshops statewide, reaching more than 750 Vermonters of all ages
- Brought our Bike Smart trailers to 79 schools and camps, enrolling 13,400 kids
- Successfully tested a remote bike rental operation at Burton Island State Park
- Hosted internationally recognized author and bike walk advocate, Jeff Speck
- And so much more!
This story is just one example of the work we do across Vermont – helping to build bike-friendly and walkable communities for all!
When Jason Stuffle moved to Colchester Avenue 15 years ago, momentum was building for improved infrastructure for pedestrians and cyclists. But year after year, meeting after meeting, progress was painfully slow and piecemeal. On-street parking barely left enough room for driving lanes, let alone bike lanes or crosswalks. Despite his advocacy, an overhaul on Colchester Ave just wasn’t happening.
Finally, last year, as Burlington was preparing to repave Colchester Avenue, Local Motion brought together and helped rally Jason and his neighbors to ramp up pressure on the City to make the street safer and more equitable. We leveraged our base of supporters to spread the word, turn residents out to speak at public meetings, and create a petition that garnered over 250 signatures. The work paid off: Safe bike lanes, sharrows, and a new crosswalk are coming to Colchester Ave! There’s more work to be done, though, which is why Jason and his neighbors aren’t finished advocating for the change they know will make their neighborhood a better place.

Mountain biking in the Green Mountain State has grown exponentially over the past decade. You'll find incredible trail networks across Vermont. To learn more, visit the Vermont Mountain Biking Association (VMBA) website. There, you'll find info on trails, local chapters, and much more!
Looking for gravity to send you down a mountain? Vermont has PLENTY of downhill riding experiences, including several lift-serve options:
