Shelburne BikeFest will return Saturday, May 31, and it promises to be better than ever! Stop by the tents in front of the Shelburne Town Offices, across from the Parade Green and the first Farmers Market of the season, between 10am and 1pm and enjoy all BikeFest has to offer.

Throughout the event, there will be free basic bike tune-ups on a first-come, first-served basis. To avoid waiting in line, consider reserving your spot by pre-registering. A maximum of 24 slots will be available to reserve. Walk-ins welcome. There will be low-cost helmets for sale; helmet fitting and decorating stations; and information on where to ride, riding safety, and the rules of the road. Two new biking activities will change this event’s gears: a Do It Yourself (DIY) Speed Bike Swap and a Kids Learn to Ride for Free.
