After School Mountain Bike Program

 

No offense to football, soccer or xc running but there’s magic to be found in our northern Michigan woods during the fall. After 4 years of Sunday group rides with Vasa Domingos, we’re excited to launch an after school program for young mountain bikers in Traverse City.

The Traverse City youth mountain bike team is made up of a group of stellar elementary, middle and high school students in the Traverse City area. The team’s goal is to unleash confidence through FUN! while also empowering young people to be independent, strong and gritty to help them overcome obstacles both on and off their bikes.

Two fall programs offered:

  • Varsity team for 7th – 12th graders
  • JV team for 3rd – 6th graders

 

Varsity team program starts the week of September 11 and goes through the week of October 23. These practices will be in addition to our weekend group rides that will remain free to all team members. This new fall program consists of practice 3x/week for 7 weeks.

Practices: Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays from 4-6P.

All practices will start/finish at the Clubhouse.

Practices will be led by a qualified coach and consist of structured workouts/intervals, skills, and free/fun riding at the Commons, Hickory, Vasa, Civic Center and various City parks.

Other program perks:

  • Free Iceman registration
  • First dibs on parts, tires, gear donated to Norte!
  • Clif Bar snacks
  • Access to Clubhouse tools

This fall program is for Norte! varsity team members only. Participants should be comfortable riding 20 miles.

Interested middle/high school students who would like to try out for the team should contact:
