Norte! is Traverse City’s bike-centric, youth-focused nonprofit advocacy organization. 

2014 has been quite a year. Below is a smattering of our proud moments in our first year of inspiring TC youth through bicycles :

  • TC RIDES – Traverse City’s weekly community slow ride with neighbors to promote an active lifestyle and create awareness for people on bikes in TC.
  • VASA Domingos – A weekly dirt shred dedicated to growing the next generation of fit, fast, strong mountain bikers.
  • Bike Valet – Encouraging people to arrive by bike, NORTE! provided convenient parking to lots of events, and was a Saturday landmark at the downtown Farmers Market.
  • Bike To School Fridays – Year round initiative to promote more biking to school (yes, even through the winter!).
  • Commuting Library – In partnership with Traverse Area District Library: TC’s first Book Bike. It’s awesome.
  • Bike to School Trains – City-wide network of bike trains connecting neighborhoods to neighborhood elementary schools.
  • El Barrio Bike Fix – Community learn to wrench event to teach kids basic bike repair and maintenance skills.
  • TC Bike Plow – Bike-powered snow plow! Clearing neighborhood sidewalks and trails. Getting fit. Building community.

We’re just warming up, though. Norte! is dreaming big for 2015 and beyond to become Traverse City’s pro-bike, pro-healthy youth, pro-active community organization. We hope you’ll join us.
