Over the past few years, Lyndon residents, business owners and local officials have been steadily working to become a more bike friendly community. Lyndon is part of Vermont's rural Northeast Kingdom, with its winding roads and village centers where people who live here and those "from away" are discovering everyday biking for transportation and for fun!

The assessment included a community visit, tour and discussion resulting in the identification a number of ideas and solutions.
- Reconfigure traffic flow at Main Street and Western Avenue.
- Install temporary improvements on a “pop-up” experimental basis at Main Street and Eastern Avenue.
- Reduce lane widths and install bike lanes on Main Street.
- Make safety improvements to crosswalks at the north end of Main Street.
- Add bike lanes to Hastings and Memorial to connect Main Street with Route 5 and Old Center Road.
- Restripe selected roads with 10’ vehicle lanes and wider shoulders.
- Consider installing advisory bike lanes on Old Center Road.
