    Background
    Mad Bikes of Waitsfield was formed in 2008 by a group of citizens interested creating a community bike program.  They sought donated bicycles, painted them a uniform color, provided bike racks and storage facilities, provided repair services, and promoted their availability.  By being an entity of the Town, the program is covered under the Town's liability insurance.

    Goals
    The goals of the program are to boost citizens' health and wellness, benefit local businesses, enhance public enjoyment of community assets, reduce our collective carbon footprint, enhance community interaction, and build collaboration with other social organizations through the provision of bicycles in one or more locations in Waitsfield Village and Irasville for use free of charge by citizens to get from one location to another without need of a vehicle.

    Steering Committee
    The Mad Bikes Steering Committee consists of five members and two alternates, all appointed for three years, except for the initial appointments, which were staggered.
