Norte! Mentors

Norte! is committed to getting kids – lots of kids! – on bikes in Traverse City. By starting them young as preschoolers on balance bikes and then nurturing them as they grow into young adults in high school, we’re dedicated to sharing our passion of bicycles with area youth no matter their age or their ability.

But we need help to see that mission through.

Our success is powered by the talented and inspiring mentors who are the heart and soul of Norte!.

From helping at our weekly rides like Vasa Domingos and Fridays@TheCommons to assisting at special events like Take A Kid Mountain Biking Day to empowering the Chicas del Norte!, our grrrrls on bikes empowerment program, to coaching our Varsity Team riders on local group rides to teaching balance bikes skills with the Estrellas, we have many, many rewarding mentorship opportunities available.

If you are an awesome person 18 years old or older who loves bikes and working with youth –  even if you have just one hour a year to give – we’d love to have you on Equipo Norte!.
