Great service
Oct 2019 • Couples
My husband and I were in Burlington to celebrate our anniversary and rented bikes to bike the Burlington Bike Path. The bikes were great, easy to rent, and the path was easy with lots to see on the way including Lake Champlain. Unfortunately my husband’s chain broke about 7 miles out. Tom B from Local Motion answered the phone and then road out and replaced it. We headed back with no more issues. This was their last weekend so the bikes will all now be serviced to be ready in the Spring. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend!

Got our group--20 in all--on the trails and happy!
Sep 2019
I brought a tour group from Chicago and worked with Local Motion to get people biking! They arranged group prices for two-day rides, maintained a complicated log as people came in and out independently, stayed open late one evening to give people more time for their initial ride, and basically were as welcoming, flexible, and good natured as could ever be imagined! For example, we had a small group with an aggressive 80-mile ride planned. They wanted to be on the road long before Local Motion opened at 10am. Local Motion staff called our hotel and got them to agree to secure the bikes overnight so our early-bird bikers could get their early start! Great service on the ground. Engaged and cooperative in arranging things in advance. Oh, and did I mention that Burlington has great trails, too? Let Local Motion get you on the trails, too.

Local Motion Trailside Center
Aug 2019 • Couples
The Burlington bike trail, which goes along Lake Champlain, is a must-do. Local Motion makes it easy and affordable to rent a bike and equipment so you can jump right on the trail as soon as possible. Julia helped size up our bikes based on our preferences and was very friendly and patient. We rented for 1-4 hours, which was enough time for us to bike the trail and back (about 20 miles). Lots of fun!!😊
If you need to rent a bike in Burlington, you won't be disappointed! 🚴‍♂️🚴‍♀️🚴‍♂️🚴‍♀️🚴‍♂️🚴‍♀️🚴‍♀️

Go Straight here and get you a bike
Jul 2019 • Couples
We woke up and decided to bike down the causeway. We showed up at this bike shop and realized they had electric assist bikes. Let me tell you this is a life changer. We rode all the way from downtown, down the causeway, to the bike ferry, to the other island. Had a picnic by the lake and then biked all the way back. Felt like we only bikes down the block. This bike is goals.

The employees were extremely helpful and friendly and kind. My favorite part of the trip

Conveniently located for Burlington Bike Path and parking next door
Jun 2019 • Couples
We wanted to spend our afternoon in Burlington outdoors and Local Motion were conveniently located next to the bike path not far from the centre of town and with parking right next door. The staff were friendly and the bike hire fee was reasonable. The bikes were in good condition but the seats are really hard and not that comfortable once you had been on the bike for a couple of hours.

Worth the experience
Oct 2018 • Couples
This is the second time I have rented a bike at this place. The staff,equipment and location are excellent. The trip up to the causeway is one of the best I have experienced anywhere. I recommend this to any one and any family. Safe and beautiful.

Good Bike Rental Place
Sep 2018 • Couples
The eight speed bikes Local Motion gave us had seen a lot of use, but were kept in good condition. Easy shifting internal gearset, comfortable seats, and we really liked the grips that had an area to rest the heel of our palms while biking. The only negative we had was the pricing; alternative is one hour or four hours, so for a two hour ride, somewhat expensive. Having their store right on the Burlington Pathway is a big plus. Would use again, considering the alternatives.

Great rental company in the perfect location!
Sep 2018 • Friends
We had a great experience renting from Local Motion. The staff were great, the bikes were perfect for what we needed and the ride was absolutely beautiful.

I wouldn't hesitate to rent from Local Motion again, the prices were the best we found in the area, the location was fantastic, and the bikes were really quick and easy to rent.

Rent locally!
Sep 2018 • Solo
My bike had a flat tire and I needed to rent a bike, I had heard of, but never before used Local Motion. I am so glad I did!!! I think the staff were excited to have a local resident rent as virtually everyone else in the shop at the time I was there was from out of state! That said, it was a great experience in every way! They ensured that my bike fit, offered me directions and suggestions and safety tips. I would not hesitate to rent again from Local Motion, very reasonable prices, attentive staff, fantastic location right on the bike path and the ease of rental. Very easy experience! Fun and within minutes of walking in I was on a bike and on my way!
