Bikes for All, All for Bikes ūüö≤

Norte‘s Bikes for All¬†program is known for serving special needs students still attending school programs. Bikes for All works with TBAISD’s New Campus, Oak Park, and others.¬†Bikes for All MeetUps ‚ÄĒ Tuesdays¬†adds an option for those 26 and older whose social opportunities are limited due, in part, to aging out of school programs. While this first run was a small group of five, it proved the concept, and we hope to expand it.

A special thank you to Rose Coleman of the Grand Traverse Pavilions who loaned us “The Duet,” which accommodates non-pedaling individuals. The bike not only looks fantastic, but the experience also places the rider front and center so that they can feel the wind on their face and view the passing world unobstructed.

This summer,¬†join us¬†every Tuesday beginning on June 8¬†at 10:30¬†am, weather permitting. The fleet of adaptive bikes is limited, but we will be ready to ensure everyone has a marvelous time. Annie and I both would love to have too many riders ‚ÄĒ the more friends and smiles, the better.

As a¬†Norte¬†Board member, I feel fortunate to work toward¬†Norte‘s mission of providing biking for all community members. It’s even more special doing so with Annie and her growing list of friends. Come on out, and let’s roll together!

Sincerely,

Sue Paul, Norte Board of Directors

P.S.¬†Norte¬†is¬†looking for volunteers¬†to help us with our expanding Bikes for All programming. If helping ensure that everyone has an opportunity to ride bikes sounds up your alley, give us a shout. We’re also looking for gently used¬†adaptive bikes in need of a good home.

If you’d like to donate financially to help grow the Bikes For All program, please made a gift and help us reach our 2021 goal.
