The Grand Traverse Regional Kids’ Bike Library, 1,000,000 Cans + You

THANKS TO MANY, MANY AWESOME PEOPLE, WE SMASHED THE “MOST RETURNABLES PICKED UP BY BICYCLE IN THE STATE OF MICHIGAN EVER” RECORD WITH AT LEAST 1,000,000 RETURNABLES 😉

Now it’s time to return them and we need your help reach our goal to fully fund our Grand Traverse Regional Kids’ Bike Library for 2020, a total cost of $6,200.

This innovative Bike Library aims to keep awesome, elementary-aged students pedaling by making sure their bike always fits, no matter their family’s resources.

Thanks to our many supporters, young people are able to borrow a bike for as long as it fits them. Once they outgrow the bike, they return it to Norte at the Civic Center in exchange for the next size up. For FREE!

HOW THE GREAT TRAVERSE CITY CAN RETURN WORKS:

  1. Commit to returning at least 200ish cans (there’s a limit of 250 per trip) for Norte by completing the form below.
  2. Whenever is convenient for you between June 11 and June 22, swing by to pick a few bags out of the trailers parked by the Clubhouse.
  3. Whenever is convenient for you, return the cans and bottles.
