Building A Bikeable Burlington: A Bike Ride and Public Conversation


  • AARP Vermont and the Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce have gotten onboard as cosponsors of this event!  They both know that making Burlington a more bike-friendly city is good for people of all ages, good for the economy, and more.  
  • We'll be raffling off a $100 Skirack gift certificate at the event!  You get one chance if you go on the ride, and another chance if you come to the meeting.  Pull out your bike and RSVP now using the form below!

Local Motion has been sounding the call for rapid improvements to Burlington's on-street biking network for well over a year now.  In 2017, Burlington DPW promised to step up the pace.  They queued up a whole lot of improvements to the on-street bike network.  But only one of them—the Union Street protected lane—actually got done.  The pace of progress is still far too timid and halting.  


2018_BTV_bike_network.jpgWhat happened?  And how do we change things in 2018?  This is your chance to find out—and to speak up.  We'll ride on portions of the proposed network above, then head inside for a conversation about both goals and process with DPW Director Chapin Spencer and Parks & Rec Director Cindi Wright.  What projects should happen next year?  And what needs to change with DPW's process so they actually get done?  Share your thoughts and frustrations, and get answers to your questions about how the City will move things forward.
