Iceman is coming! 17 days till race day and Norte! has the fever. Bad.
Mr. Iceman, Steve Brown, has been a super Norte! supporter since day one. He has regularly come out for our weekly mountain bike ride, Vasa Domingos, and has spent lots of coaching and mentoring time with the kids to help them have more FUN! on the bike.
2 years ago, with the help of Mr. Brown, we founded the Norte! Iceman Scholarship Fund (N!ISF). The N!ISF is committed to helping Traverse City kids who have earned it – think showing up consistently for our mountain bike rides, being a positive Norte! ambassador, championing bikes at their school, volunteering at our community outreach events, graduating from The Bike Más Project – take part in arguably the most awesome mountain bike race in the US.
This year, thanks to an incredibly generous donation to the N!ISF, Mr. Brown will be helping bring más Traverse City kids on mountain bike to the Iceman. In less than 3 weeks, nearly 40 Norte! riders will be toeing the line in the Iceman, Slushcup and Sno-cone races and we couldn’t be more excited.
We are beyond proud of these kids. They have earned it. They are fit. They are fast. They are legit mountain bikers: Strong on the climbs. Smooth out of the corners. Confident through the sand.
They are the next generation of bikes-for-life leaders in Traverse City.
Make sure to come out to Timber Ridge November 7th to cheer them on.

Bike Más. Iceman Más.
