Norte Wishlist

The Clubhouse and Wheelhouse, our homes at the Grand Traverse Civic Center, host our many programs and our community bike shop.

Our programs are dedicated to empowering the young and young at heart to be active for life while the shop is a community space where we share our tools, benches, and knowledge to advance our mission of building a stronger, better connected and more bicycle friendly northern Michigan.
