Thinking about dusting off your bike to run those errands in town this summer, but your bike is in need of a light tune-up? Wondering if your bike is best-fitted to you or do you need some info on where to walk and bike around town and how to do it safely? Then don’t miss the Shelburne League of the Traveling Baskets’ Third Annual BikeFest on May 25, from 10 am to 2 pm. It will be held at the front entrance of the Shelburne Town Hall, coinciding with opening day of the Shelburne Farmers Market. So grab your basket, hop on your bike, and stop by for a quick tune-up and fresh veggies! This free event is open to riders of ages and will feature:
• Basic bike tune-ups by residents, Jim Kelley, Chris Trapeni, and Victor Nuovo.
• Bike fitting evaluation by resident, Steven Antinozzi.
• Helmet fitting evaluation by Local Motion.
• Helmet decorating (with fun, reflective stickers) for kids.
• Rules of the road, riding etiquette, and riding preparedness by Local Motion.
• Local riding maps.
New this year: Spring Community Ride to the new LaPlatte River Overlook
The two-mile round trip bike excursion will take place at 1 pm and will be led by Shelburne Police Officer Josh Flore, an avid cyclist himself. Advance registration is encouraged, but not required.  The first 35 participants signing up for the event with the Shelburne Recreation Department will be given a Shelburne BikeFest T-shirt when they arrive at the overlook!
