This fall, Local Motion is challenging its staff to shake up their routines by replacing a trip they typically take by car with any other means of transportation (but no plane or helicopter, though that might be a good story). Our Services Coordinator, Sandy Bender, took us up on the challenge. Here’s her story!
Summer has been full of activity and we aren't slowing down as we enter the fall season. Here’s a look at what we’ve been up to and what’s on the horizon!
Local Motion’s Traveling E-Bike Lending Library is in currently in full swing!
It just finished up a stay at Onion River Outdoors in Montpelier and is now at the Norwich Public Library until September 10th. After that, it’s on to Hartford, and beyond! We recently reached out to a Montpelier couple who loaned a bike from the library to learn about their experience.
Summer’s here, and bikes are buzzing all over our streets, and it’s a beautiful sight.
Less beautiful? The upsurge of bike thefts that come with the summer months.

I met with Spence Putnam at his beautiful home in Weybridge, Vermont on a warm sunny day in May. Wanting to learn more about Vermonters who are commuting on an e-bike, Spence was kind enough to give me an overview of his history with bikes, his commutes, and how he uses an e-bike for trips in rural Vermont.
Our roads can get pretty busy sometimes, especially in downtowns and major travel corridors. But there are many things we can all do--no matter how we're using the road--to stay safe and keep others safe.
