Special Groups

Interested in using our bikes or bike ferry for a special event, corporate outing, wedding, etc.? 

Local Motion works to make biking and walking in Vermont a way of life. To that end, we encourage businesses and organizations to consider a day spent riding with friends and colleagues for your next event. Biking is a simple pleasure that encourages discovery and conversation and opens up new destinations that we'd ordinarily wiz by in a car. Consider a day discovering The Island Line Trail that ranks as one of the most scenic vistas in the world and is some of the easiest riding and walking terrains in all of Vermont. Superb biking, walking, gorgeous views, trails, farms, and good food await you along the Island Line Trail. We can help to plan your trip including bike rentals, bike ferry passage, and a meal at one of the many trailside eateries. We can even plan a group ride for special occasions like weddings, conference outings, and reunions. 

For more information or to set up your event please email [email protected] or call (802) 861-2700 ex.102 

Testimonial from a past wedding party

"Caitlin and I got married in Shelburne on July 4th this past summer.  We wanted to do a fun group activity for our wedding, so we called Local Motion to see if we could rent bikes for about 30 of our wedding guests for the day after the wedding - no small feat!  From the moment we were first in contact with Local Motion, Tom was extremely helpful and generous with his time.  Local Motion acted as way more than just a bike rental shop: Tom was our partner in designing a fun ride, figuring out a transportation plan, and getting everything just right - even on a busy holiday!  The ride itself was unbelievable.  Local Motion had put streamers on all the bikes, and surprised us with a "Just Married" sign on our tandem bike, and even had cans dragging behind us for the first quarter-mile.  Our guests all remember the ride fondly, and it's a memory we will cherish forever." - Christopher & Caitlin Gomes
