Equipo Norte!: Another Smart Commute Week All-Star Team

 

El Grupo Norte

Norte! is in for TART Trails’s SmartCommute Challenge, June 6 – 10.

Equipo Norte! is an all-star squad open to all awesome people. Young. Old. #SmartCommuteTC vet. Bike-commuter newbie. Working from home, retired or unemployed. Whatev. Everyone is welcome.

We like riding bikes. We’re fun. We’re not so serious. And we like eating snacks. If you support a more bike-friendly Traverse City and like to pedal to school/work, we’d love to have you on our team.

Here’s How It Works:

1. Sign up HERE.

2. Talk at least one of your classmates/co-workers/neighbors/friends to join too.

3. Ride your bike to school/work ALL Smart Commute Week (June 6-10). Try your best to ride all 5 days. If it’s raining, wear your rain jacket. If your legs are sore, drink some water and stretch. If you’re feeling lazy, don’t be. Try to come to the breakfasts too if you can. We can eat bagels together.

4. Take photos of your bike-centric Smart Commuting awesomeness and post them using #SmartCommuteTC #BikeTVC

Don’t forget to commit!

Smart Commute Week started today and we couldn’t be more excited. We love SCW because we believe pedaling to work or school is one of the most important things you can do with your bicycle. Plus there’s lots of free yummy breakfasts. Nicely done on today’s spread, Hagerty.

Our bike-centric All-Star Squad is looking rad! In addition to students and staff from 8 different schools in Traverse City, our team consists of 72 awesome people including scientists, moms, professors, entrepreneurs, speech therapists, writers, retired teachers, physicians, City Commissioners and many more.
