In spring 2017, the Burlington City Council approved PlanBTV Walk Bike, the city's first-ever walk-bike master plan. This plan is a blueprint for making Burlington the kind of place where anyone can bike and walk anywhere in safety and comfort. Now it is time to implement the plan! Join the call for making the Queen City a great place to walk and bike.
TEXT OF THE PETITION IS AS FOLLOWS:
Update — 4/17/2020: New guidance from the State early this afternoon effectively allows bike shops to operate with curbside pickup for phone and online purchases starting Monday, 4/20, and they continue to be open for repairs. We recommend calling ahead to see if your shop requires an appointment. We're keeping this petition open for now, to ensure that bike shops are considered essential going forward. Thank you for signing!
We need to make sure that bike shops in Vermont are able to stay open during Governor Scott's Stay at Home order so that essential workers and others who rely on them for repairs, maintenance, and products can get what they need. Bikes are transportation, just like cars, and yet car dealerships and repair shops are able to keep operating while bike shops are currently permitted only to repair bikes.
Sign the petition below to make it clear to the Governor that bikes are an essential mode of transportation and that Vermonters who rely on bikes need the support of bike shops. Here's the petition text:
