The Eastern Elementary Flyer


The Eastern Elementary Flyer is a Norte! Bike Train connecting the Orchard Heights Neighborhood to Eastern Elementary for Traverse City Bikes To School Day and Bike To School Fridays.

The Flyer departs from its Station at Clancy Park at 8:35. It enjoys a lovely ride down East Orchard Drive to Eastwood to Eastern Elementary. That’s a lot of “easts”!

About a 1 km ride.


The Flyer is a perfect “drive2bike” train for those students on Old Mission who don’t live within biking distance. Parents are welcome to avoid the pickup/drop off line by throwing a bike in the car and dropping them off at Clancy Park.

The Flyer will arrive back at its Station after school  at 4:20.

A Norte! volunteer will lead The Flyer both to and from school. Parents are responsible for getting their child to The Flyer Station on time as well as picking them up there after school.

Our trains pride themselves on being punctual. We can’t be late for school therefore The Flyer will not wait for anyone.

Bike To School Fridays rules apply:

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