MULTI DAY BIKE RENTAL AND SHUTTLE PACKAGES!
93 miles of trail doesn't need to be done all at once, cycling a portion of it instead of all may be more desirable for some. This is a self-guided package where you choose your own pace and itinerary for the cycling journey. Vermont is special in its rural, local nature and combined with the infancy of the trail there are currently limited trailside lodging options at this time. Lodging is not included in this package but many local hotel, Airbnb and Vrbo options exist in towns throughout the trail. We'll meet you at either end of the trail where you will collect your bike, tour equipment and any add-ons such as bike saddlebags and tow-along trailers. Receive a brief EBike/Bike orientation and charging and storage tutorial and you can begin your adventure!
The full trail can be done in less time but we recommend spending at least 3 cycling days (two nights) or for a more leisurely experience, four days of cycling. This pace is around 30+- miles of biking per day allowing you to complete a third of the trail per day and enjoy the local scene along the way! End your travels back at your car in St. Johnsbury, or take your shuttle ride back to your vehicle Swanton. This tour can be done in 3 or 4 days depending on your pace and leisure time in between. Hop on our shuttle in St. Johnsbury and get shuttled West to the town of Swanton, the very beginning (or end!) of the LVRT, OR meet us in Swanton to begin your tour!
Our Half Trail Bike Tour is an approximately 55-mile option that travels through the portion of trail with more amenities, accommodations and attractions, and allows for a comfortable 27-mile per day pace that can be done over two days.
This tour begins or ends in the middle of the LVRT at our trailside bike center in Johnson. Meet us at or get shuttled to our trailside bike center in Johnson or at the St. Johnsbury trailhead for this tour.
BIKE SHUTTLE LUGGAGE TRANSFER
Spending multiple days on the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail is such an accessible trip because it passes through towns and villages with such frequency you can explore unique and local places, eat great food and gear up with supplies. This means that you can explore the trails natural beauty without carrying days worth of food, water and gear. Not loading yourself down with days worth of clothing and necessities makes the trip that much more enjoyable. Less stress on you and the bike! Based on availability LVBT offers multiple Luggage and Gear transportation options as we expand this aspect of our business. Please contact us for Daily Luggage transfer options or half-way and full trail destination transfers, we work with each group directly to ensure a smooth trip experience.

Please contact us directly and we'd be happy to work with you! Popular dates fill up fast! Smaller groups can be accommodated but Groups of 6 or more are recommended for custom shuttles due to cost.
