Clubhouse Grand Opening
Awesome news! We found a home. Let’s celebrate!
Come check out our new Clubhouse at the Civic Center (old police sector building near the basketball courts).
Open house style. Swing by anytime between 5:30 and 7:30. Free snacks and high fives. Plus, pinata smashing at 6:30 to officially open the Clubhouse.
Among other things, the Clubhouse will act as Traverse City’s Community Bike Shop to educate, empower and advocate.
Clubhouse membership is just $10/year for an individual and $25/year for a family.
