Bike To School Friday: The Week 5 Numbers


What started out as a cold, wet, windy morning turned into a beautiful Northern Michigan fall day and Bike To School Friday rolled on for our 5th week of the school year.

Special shout outs to:

  • The TCAPS Montessori Trolley for winning the “Most Awesome Bike Train Of The Day” award. This girls only bike gang of 5 led by Norte! board member, Mr. Clark, pedaled to school with smiles, joy and lovely baskets too. Keep awesome, Trolley.
  • Willow Hill‘s John and Christian Leachman for pedaling nearly 5 miles (they live out of town near Bugai Rd.) both ways on the TART Trail  to join the Comet bike train.
  • Senor Yarro for once again bringing the Norte! bike-powered/mobile bike shop to Glenn Loomis for the after school, learn-to-wrench, El Barrio Bike Fix clinic. He’ll be there on Fridays through October, kids!
  • The always styling Annabelle of the Eastern Flyer for rocking her Elsa dress on the way to school (see photo below).
