Norte’s Youth Mountain Bike Team

The season starts May 2 and runs until June 6— let’s roll!

Shred with Team Orange! Norte’s Youth Mountain Bike Team hits the trails of northern Michigan with sensational elementary, middle, and high school students. We unleash confidence and strengthen courage and hearts through loads of fun. Mountain biking with Norte empowers young people to be independent, strong, and gritty — yes, we get a little dirty mountain biking!

What’s required? A positive attitude and an ability to ride comfortably ride 3-4 miles (1st-5th grade) or 8-10 miles (6th-12th grade).


Mountain Bike Team includes three tracks:

  • Farm Team for our younger riders, 1st–5th grade. They ride two days a week.
  • Rally Team for 6th–12th-grade riders looking for some adventure and exercise. They also ride two days a week.
  • Race Team is for our 6th–12th-grade riders who are ready to learn some advanced skills, and ready for a bigger challenge. The Race Team rides three days a week.

Schedules will vary slightly depending upon location. Please note times and days when registering. Generally, Farm Team starts at 4:30 pm, and Rally Team and Race Team start at 4:15 pm. Download Schedule (phone-friendly PDF).

We use Active Network for registration. If you previously participated in a Norte program, you already have an account created. Sign in at the top of the registration page, or enter your email address username when prompted — no need to create a new family account for participation.

This short, how-to video helps walk you through the registration process, including how to sign up for a waitlist if a preferred session is full.


We need paid coaches and volunteer assistant coaches for all of our bike programs, including ABC.
