NORTE! Bike Trains

madewithOver (3)

NORTE! Youth Cycling’s Bike to School Fridays have been a blast. In the hopes of getting more kids riding, we’re organizing a network of Bike Trains to connect all of Traverse City’s neighborhoods to all of our neighborhood elementary schools. These Bike Trains allow kids to bike to school together in a FUN and safe environment.

Currently, we have five Bike Trains:

The Eastern Elementary Express
The Montessori Trolley
The Central Grade Zephyr
The Montessori Morning Star
The Central Grade Coastal Classic

A NORTE! volunteer will lead the trains both to and from school. Parents are responsible for getting their child to the Station on time as well as picking them up after school.

Our trains pride themselves on being punctual. We won’t be late for school therefore we can’t wait for anyone. See the specific train’s schedule for departure and arrival times.

N!YC is looking to collaborate with awesome moms/dads/volunteers to build a network of grassroots, informal neighborhood bike trains in TC. Do you already bike to school with your kids? Would you be willing to invite a few friends/classmates? That’s all it takes. We’re happy to help organize and spread the word.

Bike To School Fridays rules apply:

Helmets required.
Safe riding mandatory.
Smiles and High Fives encouraged.
