Happy March! Norte’s Spring Programs are Right Around the Corner

Spring is on the horizon! Here are a few updates from your favorite Norte Program Director, Mr. Ben Boyce.

  1. Classes are available for Norte’s bike mechanics class series during spring break. 2 classes per day from March 27 through April 3 for most ages. Details and registration link here.
  2. Norte’s longest-running after school adventure-by-bike program, The Bike Más Project, returns in May to take 4th-7th graders on 90-minute bike adventures to learn smart biking skills. Small teams of 5 students leave right from school! Details and registration link here. 
  3. ​There are still some spots open for this spring’s Grand Traverse Region Youth Mountain Bike Team Program. New locations and team formats for the new year: elgruponorte.org/mountainbike/    
  4. Does riding in the woods with your kid sound like a good time? We are looking for parent volunteers to help our youth mountain bike team coaches by riding as the team sweep for the back of the pack. There are LOTS of opportunities to help! Details, volunteer background check form, and sign up schedule all here!

It’s hard to NOT be excited for springtime after this warm weekend! Soon enough we’ll have dry pavement and fast dirt ready to welcome hundreds of eager tires for a spin. I hope you can join us!

PS. More awesome news! We just opened up another session of summer bike camp the week of June 29th with full-day options thanks to our friends at Northwestern Michigan College For Kids and Traverse Area Community Sailing. Details and registration link HERE.
