Norte is for happy, healthy, ready to learn kids in Northern Michigan no matter their age. We are also huge fans of balance bikes and believe that there is no better way to teach children how to ride.
Estrellas, our learn-to-ride program for preschoolers using balance bikes, started in 2016 and, thanks to Superior Physical Therapy, Priority Health, Fifth Third Bank and McLain Cycle and Fitness, is growing.
The Estrellas is usually an in-school 4-week program for preschoolers during the fall/winter/spring at 23 area schools — in 2020, Estrellas will be run as a daily meet-up community event at the Clubhouse.
For more information about the current Estrellas plans, check out the Fall 2020 page HERE.
Learn To Ride
In addition to our other educational programs, The Bike Mas Project and The Solution, the Estrellas is another wonderful opportunity to build a healthy, move-more culture and encourage students to be active, happy, and ready-to-learn.
Want to help make the Estrellas awesome and run a meet-up or two? We’re looking for a couple volunteers to get involved and assist with set up/tear down of the balance bike course. It’s both FUN! and easy 😉 Promise. Email Ben to get involved firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have a balance bike collecting dust, please consider donating it (tax exempt, of course) to Norte. We’ll put it to good use, promise.
You can also make financial contributions, of course.
$25 = one new tiny helmet
$100 = one new balance bike
