Grand Traverse Regional Kids’ Bike Library

The Grand Traverse Regional Kids’ Bike Library keeps pre-k through elementary-aged students on a bike that always fits. 

Young people (approximately ages 3-10) can borrow a bike for as long as it fits them. Once they outgrow the bike, they return it to Norte for the next size up. The bike library is free, but we suggest a $25 donation to help maintain a sustained fleet of bicycles. The bike library is possible because of continued community support and donations. Local bike shops like McLain Cycle & Fitness have notably been tremendously generous. 


And, our fantastic partner libraries at Bellaire Public Library, Central Lake District Library, Kalkaska County Library, and  Leelanau Township Library.


In return for offering the Grand Traverse Regional Kids Bike Library, we ask that all young riders promise to:

  1. Take good care of the bike
  2. Ride their bike as much as possible
  3. Stay positive and be a proud Norte ambassador
