Norte Clubhouse

clubhouse-1

 

The Clubhouse is our home. We loan out bikes, we sell bikes, we accept bike donations. It also hosts the Grand Traverse Region’s only Community Bike Shop.

The Clubhouse is an essential place that provides an essential service to our community.’

It is a space to learn, fix, create, tweak, align, repair, maintain, and adjust. And, it’s centrally located at the Grand Traverse Civic Center.

We share tools, benches, bikes, and knowledge with our members to strengthen the community and advance our mission of building healthier, better connected, and more bicycle-friendly places.

Thanks to our generous supporters, the Clubhouse’s Community Bike Shop is free to all.

SUPPORT THE CLUBHOUSE

The Clubhouse is made possible with generous donations. If you value a Community Bike Shop and are able, please consider a $10, $25, $50, or larger contribution to help pay for rent, insurance, and standard bike shop supplies like tubes, lube, grease, cables, and tires. 

If you prefer to donate needed items, take a moment to look over our Clubhouse Community Bike Shop Wishlist.

DON’T YET HAVE THE SKILLS TO USE THE CLUBHOUSE?

Not everyone is ready to jump in and start wrenching their bike on their own. When you’re ready, consider taking one of Norte’s bike mechanics classes. We’re also able to customize a training for you and a group of friends or family.

Schedule a time with one of our professional mechanics to take a look and give you a quote.

COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS

Norte takes the COVID-19 threat seriously and is using all reasonable measures to prepare for and mitigate the risk of COVID-19 transmission to our employees, volunteers, and community while continuously delivering services to our community. Norte has instituted enhanced cleaning protocols, and we are practicing safe social distancing for any in-person contact and are avoiding contact when possible. Best practices have been communicated to employees and volunteers for protecting their health, and we are integrating those practices into our programs and communications. 

We ask that anyone using the Community Bike Shop follow the posted rules at the Clubhouse and follow instructions for handling tools and bikes and maintaining social distancing rules. Anyone who is showing symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, shortness of breath) is asked to wait until their symptoms have passed before requesting an appointment. You will receive further guidance once your appointment is made. 

Norte continues to respond to the COVID-19 threat by implementing protective safety measures according to the latest from U.S. Centers for Disease Control, World Health Organization, and Grand Traverse County Health Department. We are proud to lend our voice to help build awareness of COVID-19 and best practices to curb the spread of the virus. Stay Safe. Stay Active, Responsibly.
