According to People On Bikes, of all the bicycle trips taken by U.S. adults, 79% lead to or from somewhere other than work – like the park.
Parks By Bicycle Week is a celebration of that. Ride bikes. Visit parks. Play. Have fun. Eat picnics. Win prizes. It’s going to be awesome. Promise.
How it works:
- Ride your bicycle to any of our many Traverse City/GT County parks. Map list HERE of all the parks – there’s 24!, folks.
- “Check in” on FB, Instagram or Twitter and “tag” us to be entered into our Parks by Bicycle Week contest to win some sweet prizes. Think Norte swag or Clubhouse memberships or entries into Adventurama or our summer camp.
- While you’re there, have a picnic, hit the playground or just enjoy some nature.
- Give yourself a pat on the back for going by bike and making Traverse City a bit more awesome.
How many parks can you visit in a day? How many in a week? Special prizes will be awarded in these two categories.
Do you Strava? We’d love to see the routes you use to get to the parks. Join our Strava Club HERE.
Parks By Bicycle Week starts this morning and finishes at dusk Sunday, May 20. Each time you “park by bicycle” make sure to “check in” at the park and “tag” Norte to be entered into the contest. There is no limit on the number of times you can enter. More “parks by bicycle” = better chance of “winning”.
“Winners” will be randomly selected and notified by Tuesday, May 22.
