Grand Traverse Regional Kids’ Bike Library
The Grand Traverse Regional Kids’ Bike Library aims to keep awesome, elementary-aged students pedaling by making sure their bike always fits, no matter their family’s resources.
Thanks to our many supporters, young people are able to borrow a bike for as long as it fits them. Once they outgrow the bike, they return it to the Norte Wheelhouse at the Civic Center (orange building in the north end of the park) in exchange for the next size up. For FREE!
We currently have several gently used kids bikes
- 12 inch (ideal for 3-4 year olds)
- 16 inch (ideal for 4-5 year olds)
- 20 inch (ideal for 5-6 year olds)
- 24 inch (ideal for 6-10 year olds)
We also have some balance bikes to share during the summer for a small donation. Learn more about balance bikes HERE.
- take good care of the bike
- ride the bike as much as possible
- be a positive Norte ambassador
