Fall 2020 Youth Mountain Bike Team Report
MICHIGAN’S LARGEST YOUTH MOUNTAIN BIKE TEAM KEPT ROLLING IN FALL 2020
In the fall of 2020, Norte’s Grand Traverse Regional Youth Mountain Bike Team program demonstrated that the pandemic didn’t cancel adventure. Taking extra precautions to keep everyone safe amid COVID-19, we were still able to have one of our biggest and best seasons yet. The unique challenges of 2020 could not stop the fantastic young riders, coaches, and families who made this fall so special.
Enrollment increased by 41% from Fall 2019’s program to 2020. This growth is evidence that what we practice to be true is right—the outdoors is the place to be anytime, particularly in a challenging time.
We also increased our practice locations from two in 2019 to seven in 2020. This expansion allows for more flexibility and accessibility to folks from across Northern Michigan. With 44 fantastic coaches, we expanded our reach to represent four counties.
Thank you immensely to everyone who kept us rolling this fall—whether as a spectacular coach, enthusiastic rider, or supportive family member. We honestly couldn’t do it without you—thank you.
