Traverse City Summer Bike Camp? Health, Safety, Fun Remain Norte’s Priority

The waiting and unknowing is tough. It’s been a good test of our team’s bedrock principles: strength, patience, resiliency, and creativity.

Like you, we watch the COVID-19 numbers, predictions, and press conferences with a hopeful, public health first mindset.

What does this mean for Traverse City’s summer bike camp?

We are confident that we will still be able to provide our fun, safe, and educational camp with you in some shape and form this summer. Norte’s camps are small, with groups of 8 or fewer. We also spend 99.9% of the time outside riding bikes and exploring our community. These models are a source of pride for us, and we trust we can transform them to satisfy current needs.

To be ready for that possibility, we have established a Program Safety Task Force and are currently creating policy and protocol to ensure summer programs remain safe, healthy, and enjoyable. We continue to receive guidance from state and local health officials and await new guidelines which we expect will offer further direction for summer programs.

Safety and health are of utmost importance, and we will never compromise that.

We will decide to go, delay, modify or cancel summer bike camp late May/Early June.

In the meantime, keep riding your bikes with your family! Ride strong, smile big, ding, and wave.
