Local Motion is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization promoting cycling, rollerblading and walking and the trails, bikeways, and sidewalks that make such travel safe, easy and fun!

Our office and resource center is located on the Burlington Bike Path next to the train platform at Union Station. From Interstate I-89, take Exit 14W and follow Main Street all the way down into Burlington. Main Street ends in front of the train station. Go around back and you've found us!

Local Motion has been around in various forms since 1998. Originally Burlington Bikeways, we were cycling activists with vision and no money. We dug into our own pockets and purchased an old pontoon boat for a five-weekend Bike Ferry demonstration. The response was tremendous! We were so enthused by our vision of the Island Line Rail Trail with its Bike Ferry and Cycle the City, that other people caught the bug. In 1999, volunteers secured grants for Cycle the City and the Bike Ferry and we were off and pedaling. We haven't looked back.

Local Motion's Trail Finder is your source for hiking, biking, and cross country skiing trails in Chittenden County and beyond!
