Traverse City Summer Balance Bike Meet-ups

Estrellas is Norte’s learn to ride program to help preschoolers and kindergarteners get cruising on balance bikes. These balance bike meetups are fun, free, and happen twice a week at the Norte Clubhouse all summer long.


Summer meetups begin when school is dismissed for the summer and runs through the end of August. Please check the Norte calendar for opening day.

  • Monday nights at 5:00 – 6:00 pm
  • Friday mornings at 10:00 – 11:00 am


Although we have several balance bikes (and helmets) to lend out, if your child has their own balance bike and helmet, please bring it. These kids work up an appetite, so we encourage bringing snacks or even dinner to throw yourself a picnic in the grassy area next to the Clubhouse The Norte Clubhouse is right next to the Civic Center playground, so everyone is encouraged to go back and forth. Ripping the zip-line at the playground is hard to pass up!


If you’re interested in helping make the Summer Balance Bike MeetUps amazing and memorable and would like to volunteer to be on hand for a meet-up or two,  please let us know. It’s rewarding, super relaxed, and full of smiles. Signing up to help is easy on the Norte volunteer page.
