Lake Champlain Bikeways; Making it Happen A Manual for Communities and Businesses in the Champlain Valley Interested in the Benefits of Bicycle Theme Loops
This manual is designed to help communities, businesses, and non-profit organizations establish bicycle theme loops as part of the Lake Champlain Bikeways network. Over the years, many individuals have asked the question: "How can my community or business directly benefit from Lake Champlain bikeways?" Or questions like: "What does it take to be a bicycle-friendly community or business?" or "How can we attract more bicycle tourists to our region?" or "What is meant by 'theme loop' and how can we get one started?"

It's these and other questions that this manual begins to answer. It is intended to give you a taste of the opportunities offered through the Lake Champlain Bikeways program. For a full meal, interested persons should obtain a copy of our more comprehensive technical manual, Lake Champlain Bikeways: What It Can Do For Your Community and Business, by Bruce Burgess, founder and director of Bicycle Holidays, a touring company in Middlebury, Vermont.

A Lake Champlain Bikeways Theme Loop Defined:
A Lake Champlain Bikeways Theme Loop is a bicycle route of the Lake Champlain Bikeways network named for the natural and cultural characteristics of the landscape it passes through. Using existing roads, theme loops generally range from 5-60 miles in distance and often link natural, cultural, historic, and recreational sites and attractions. As side loops of the 350-mile Champlain Bikeway around the Lake, theme loops offer opportunities to explore the hamlets and hinterlands of the Champlain Valley. Important facilities and services that provide touring cyclists with food, water, parking, restrooms, and accommodations, exist on all Lake Champlain Bikeways theme loops.

Lake Champlain Bikeways theme loops are for communities and businesses in the Champlain Valley interested in enhancing economic vitality and improving quality of life.
