Bike - Gazelle UltimateC380

Gazelle Dutch Bikes

Ride with the Dutch! An excellent bike for cruising around town, riding to work or grabbing some groceries. We have models with Bosch or Shimano motors with 4 levels of assist and lithium-ion batteries. Bikes will go up to 65 miles per charge and will put a smile on your face. Don't be a shut-in—buy one of these and see how much fun it can be to ride a bike up the green hills of Vermont!





Bratbike on facebook

We're now using facebook to post used bikes, shop specials, and miscellaneous interesting stuff.



West River Trail

Brattleboro's flat, riverside woods trail is back to normal after completion of the I-91 bridge.





You need lights

Many people are unaware that Vermont bicycle law was changed a few years ago to better reflect a cyclist's status as a vehicle. Front and rear lights are now required on all bikes from 1/2-hour after sunset until 1/2-hour before sunrise. Operating a vehicle without proper lighting is a moving violation and carries a pretty stiff fine (like 80 bucks or so). We have lots of lighting options for less than $80.

The Light & Motion VIS500 is a good example of a modern, USB-rechargeable light. For $52.95 you get 500 lumens of LED lighting powered up by a Li-ion battery you recharge from a micro USB port. High beam, low beam, flashing modes, and the whole thing weighs about the same as the pocketful ofquarters you might have carried to shovel into a Brattleboro parking meter.

Good lights are one thing you can't afford to be without, especially at this time of year!



Bike maps from Windham Regional Commission

You can go to our regional planning commission's web site and download some very special maps—bicycle suitability maps, to be exact. These are maps showing hills, shoulders, traffic volumes, and road surfaces as they matter to cyclists.

New traffic patterns downtown

  • Please note that the sidewalk in front of our store has been widened to improve the pedestrian environment in this busy intersection. There is no longer parking directly in front of our Paramount building. There is a loading zone just past us (in front of A Candle In The Night) where you can stop to load and unload your bikes. There is no sign for this, but the parking enforcement people have assured us they will not ticket a car with flashers on stopping to load or unload. DO NOT BLOCK THE DRIVEWAY!
  • Long term parking for our end of Main Street is either the High-Grove lot, 1/2 block up High St. from us, or at the parking garage on Elliot St.




Southern Vermont's oldest continuously operating bike business

Brattleboro Bicycle Shop is a year-round, professional sales and service store right in the middle of Vermont's coolest downtown. We sell and service most types of bikes and support bikes as transportation in southern Vermont.

Our mission is to provide the highest level of person-to-person service for anyone who loves to ride bikes, especially those who prefer them to cars. We depend on cars, too, but Brattleboro Bicycle Shop believes the world will be a better place if the pendulum swings away from cars and back towards people.

Vermont E-Bike incentives for 2024

The State of Vermont, as part of the pressing effort to reduce fossil fuel usage in transportation, has refined and renewed its incentive program to help people get out of old cars and onto e-bikes. The program, created for the summer of 2022, ran through the money allocated for it in just a couple of months and lots of lessons were learned. Things have been tightened up, streamlined, and given increased funding for 2024.

  • awards are income-sensitive
  • it matters that you will use this to reduce car use—not just for recreation
  • up to $800 for cargo bikes and $400 for regular, single bikes
  • these awards are in addition to the $200 grants available from Green Mountain Power.
