Shelburne is home to an impressive number of tourist attractions and special events as well as a thriving historic village and stunning views of Lake Champlain, which attract many to bike and walk in the Shelburne area. Other special events include concerts, biathlons, triathlons, fireworks, parades and various year round festivals.
Local Motion is supportive of local efforts to make Shelburne an even better place to walk and bike. We have helped students at Shelburne Community School learn how to pedal with style and confidence through our Bike Smart trainings and encouraged adults to make two wheel transportation a part of their routine through our Everyday Bicycling workshop at Shelburne Library.
Local Motion is involved with efforts by local residents and the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission to make Shelburne a safer community for walking and biking. Specifically, we worked with the town to develop a Form Based Code creating a more pedestrian oriented Route 7 corridor north of the village.
Shelburne is an increasingly popular destination - home to Shelburne Museum, Shelburne Vineyard, Folino’s Pizza, Fiddlehead Brewery, and Vermont Teddy Bear Company, as well as a brand new bicycle rest area (which includes a picnic table, kiosk, interpretive sign and bike rack). Pedestrian and cyclist safety in this corridor is entering a critically important phase and Local Motion will continue to work with local residents to ensure Shelburne continues to be a safe and appealing destination.
To become more involved in making Shelburne a safe and welcoming environment for walking and biking consider getting involved with the Shelburne Bike and Pedestrian Paths Committee.
