Since 2013 husband-wife founders Ty and Johanna Schmidt have been operating the bike-advocacy organization from their Traverse City home. With a vision to build a stronger, better connected and more bike-friendly community through the rising generation, this spring Norte! is celebrating their new digs. On May 1st the group officially opens the doors of the new Norte! Clubhouse, which will act as a community bike shop among several other features. Including bike safety and repair programs, safe routes to schools events and youth leadership the tangible home base allows members and supporters to connect in a central location. Leading up to May, Norte! is asking for any handy community members to lend assistance in preparing the Clubhouse for show! Have resources to contribute? Get a hold of Ty at .
