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, is growing.

Estrellas is usually an in-school, four-week program for preschoolers during the fall/winter/spring at 23 area schools — in the COVID era, Estrellas will be run as a daily meet-up community event at the Clubhouse.

Learn To Ride

In addition to our other educational programs, Adventure Bike Club and The Solution, 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 Estrellas awesome, and run a meet-up or two? We’re looking for a couple of 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 at

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.

Thank Estrellas Title Sponsor, Superior Physical Therapy!

You can also make financial contributions, of course.

$25 = one new tiny helmet

$100 = one new balance bike
