More Girls On Bikes

Norte’s programs operate from a foundation of inclusivity and access for all. We also know that many young women prefer to ride amongst themselves. That’s how Norte’s More Girls on Bikes initiative was born.

When young women ride bikes, they develop healthy habits, independence, and confidence. That is exactly More Girls on Bikes’s focus.

Saturday, September 24, 10 – 2 pm, VASA at Bartlett Trailhead.

This skills clinic is for girls in grades 6–8. It’s a beginner-level course focuses on improving bike handling and building confidence on the bike and the trail. Instructors: Abby Havill and Lauren Dake.

In the past, we have offered additional clinics, including skills classes for youth and adults, and a bike mechanics skills course for riders of all ages. We hope to bring these offerings back for 2023. All clinics have a 12 person limit.


Thanks to our generous donors and sponsors, Norte is proud to provide youth scholarships to ensure that all families can participate in our programsWe encourage families to apply for scholarships prior to registering at Scholarship Application.
