ELECTRIC BIKES

Most people that rent electric bikes from us head to the spectacular Colchester Causeway, a four-mile rail trail ten miles north of downtown Burlington, built out into Lake Champlain in 1901 and converted to the Island Line Trail in the early 1990s.  It was named to the Rails-to-Trails Hall of Fame in 2010.  It is a must see for visitors to Burlington.  And the great thing is that our place is only two miles from the Causeway!

We are now open 7 days a week by reservation only.

We rent ebikes for exploring the Causeway, the waterfront bike path and downtown.  The Causeway is only 15 minutes (2 miles) from our place.  Burlington is 5 miles in the other direction on the lake front Bike Path.

We will provide you with a helmet (or bring your own if you'd like), a paper map of the Causeway and the Bike Path into downtown Burlington.  We also provide instruction on the use of the ebike.  It's easy.

Most of our customers pick up the ebikes in the a.m. and head out to the Causeway.  If the bike ferry is operating you can cross the cut and bike about the Lake Champlain Islands as well.  (Currently open weekends.  Weekdays as well starting June 18.)  Have lunch at Allenholm Farm or visit Snow Farm Winery.  Then take the bike ferry back.  Many people then take the ebike into downtown Burlington on the waterfront Bike Path.  Return the ebike to us when you are ready and lock it up.  Unlike downtown, it's free parking in our yard.

It's as simple as that!  Reservations are a must.

The story of the extension of the Burlington  Bike Path out to the Causeway to the Lake Champlain Islands is captured in Chapter 15 of Rick Sharp's book:  The Burlington Bike Path and Waterfront Park.  We have posted Chapter 15 so you can learn all about the Causeway before you visit it.
