Central Grade

El Grupo Norte

Historical Central Grade School is located in the heart of Traverse City and is home to the Super Stars.

In addition to a solid showing at last year’s inaugural Traverse City Bikes To School Day and having a very bike-friendly principal, Central Grade boasts 3 Bike Trains for Fridays Fantastico.

The Central Grade Zephyr

The Zephyr connects the Oak Park neighborhood to Central Grade Elementary. The Zephyr leaves its station at F&M Park at 7:40.

The Zephyr rolls down Washington Street on the Cross-Town TART Bike Route to Cass to 7th to school. Roughly a 2km ride.

The Zephyr will return to its station at F&M Park at 3:30.

Contact Ty Schmidt at ty@elgruponorte.org if you’re planning on riding the Zephyr.

The Central Grade Coastal Classic

The Central Grade Coastal Classic  connects Old Town Neighborhood to Central Grade School.

The Coastal Classic leaves from its Station at Oryana (corner of Lake/10th) at 7:40. With a nod to the semi-luxurious Alaskan passenger train, this bike train enjoys a lovely ride through Central neighborhood to to school.
