There is SO much going on in Central Vermont this summer that we HAD to share with you! We are excited to announce that Local Motion's new statewide advocacy role has landed right here in the heart of the Green Mountains and is kicking off with a bang!
On Saturday, July 16 from 10am-2pm we will be participating in the Drive Less, Have More Fun event at the Statehouse in Montpelier . There will be fun and games, including the opportunity to test electric-assist bikes and even make your own smoothie by pedaling your heart out on a stationary bike. Come out and meet amazing advocates for making getting around in Vermont a cleaner, greener reality.
From 1:45-2:45pm there will be both a walking and biking tour of Montpelier. Mayor John Hollar will guide bicyclists on a tour of Montpelier's future walk-bike infrastructure, while Ward Joyce takes participants for a stroll through Montpelier's innovative pop-up projects, including Langdon Street Alive.

Then, at 3pm, we will be meeting back at the Statehouse to walk and bike up to the Do Good Fest hosted by National Life. Admission to this amazing event - with fun activities for kids, all of your favorite local food vendors, and music by Big Head Todd & The Monsters- is free! But if you make a suggested donation of $5 you'll be contributing to the Branches of Hope Cancer Patient Fund, PLUS you'll get a nifty Local Motion water bottle. Nothing screams "summer" more than biking and outdoor concerts!
