The Bke Mas Project teaches urban bike safety skills through empowerment, education, and adventure. Much adventure!
The Bike Más Project kids will:
- Explore Traverse City on their bike and discover its many awesome places
- Learn how to bike safe and bike smart
- Develop bike repair and maintenance skills
- Become a bike handling ninja
- Build confidence. Get fit. And have FUN!
We launched The Bike Más Project in the spring of 2015 at Traverse Heights Elementary and now thanks to the Kiwanis Club and a Michigan Fitness Foundation/Michigan DOT Safe Routes To School grant, we’re excited to grow to reach more – lots more! – kids in 2017.
The Bike Más Project runs both as a 1x/week after-school program in the spring/fall and as a week long camp in the summer.

“We participated in this program last summer with two of our children. They both absolutely loved it. Not only did it get them out and physically active, as a biking family, the Norte! group taught them critical bicycle safety skills while instilling the love of cycling through making it incredibly fun.” – Amanda DeBruyn
