May is Bike Month!

What could be more Jibe than May is Bike Month? You say you haven't heard of it? Allow us to explain. "May is Bike Month" is a regional campaign to promote and reward bicyclists throughout the Sacramento region who ride their bikes in May. This isn't our first rodeo. In 2018, North Natomas collectively logged a total of 89,772 miles for the challenge. We encourage North Natomas residents, students and employees to join us pledging, tracking trips, miles, and having a great time.

Join the Movement

To get started, go to Bike in May. There you can register yourself or join a team with your club, workplace or school. There will be month-long challenges, virtual badges to earn and weekly prizes to win.

Bike Fun in North Natomas

Biking in May is a great way to get to work, school, run errands or just have fun. Jibe would like you to join us for the "May the 4th Be With You Bike Ride." The 23 mile trek includes both trails and street riding. Helmets are required. Make sure you are up for the challenge.

Meet at the Jibe office on Saturday, May 4. The ride starts promptly at 8:30 am. The Jibe office is at 1918 Del Paso Road, Suite 100.

Be ready for some good eats along the way.

Low Cost Helmet Sale

Safety gear is very important for bike riders. Children can grow out of their helmets every couple of years. Jibe is having a low cost helmet sale on Thursday, May 16, 5 - 8 pm. Our team will be at Food Truck Mania at the North Natomas Library. Buy a helmet for only $5 and we'll make sure it's a perfect fit.

Keeping it Social

Jibe wants to know all about your cycling adventures. When you Bike in May, share it with us. From pictures, to new trails to your favorite place to ride. #iBikeNN.

We already have a few ideas up our sleeve and want to share #31PlacestoRide in California. Follow along on Twitter and Facebook. We'll map out some rides you've probably tried a time or two, but we also have some gems to share that will hopefully be a new experience.
