BikeMas_logoDesignA_Rev2

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.

2017 Spring Schedule (1x/week x 5 weeks starting the 1st week in May, specific days of week TBD):

Thanks to the Kiwanis Club, Michigan Fitness Foundation, The Bike Mas Project is offered free of charge to students.

Each session is limited to six 4th & 5th graders and students  who sign up will be selected randomly a week before the program starts.

“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
