May is Bike Month!

What could be more Jibe than May is Bike Month? It's a regional campaign to promote and reward bicyclists throughout the Sacramento region who ride their bikes in May. 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.


Jibe Express Service Changes in Effect

Some changes have been made to Jibe Express. After careful consideration of feedback from our riders, as well as transit planning professionals, changes were mede to better reflect traffic patterns and improve the ride for passengers.

Changes at a glance: Please check your route times.

  • Westlake area above Del Paso Road that was previously served by the Westside Route, will now be served by the Midwest Route.
  • Time points on the Westside and Midwest Routes have been adjusted to accommodate the updated routes.
  • Some time points were adjusted on the Eastside Route to better reflect traffic patterns. Time points were changed no more than 10 minutes.

These changes went into effect on April 8. If you need an updated schedule and map, or haven't had a chance to ride, go to: Jibe Express Map and Schedule.


Bike Doc: Where are You?

As you gear up to log your miles and trips in May, you'll want to make sure your bike's in perfect riding order. Our Bike Doc mechanics have a busy schedule in April and May throughout North Natomas. Tune-ups and repairs are free. One bike per person and first come, first served. Check out the Bike Doc schedule to see which event works best for you.

Jibe's 2018 Annual Report

Jibe did a lot of exciting things in 2018. One of the biggest changes was rebranding from North Natomas Transportation Management Association to North Natomas Jibe. The new name and logo was created with input from our board of directors, advice from marketing professionals, and community members.

To see what Jibe accomplished last year, take a look at our 2018 Annual Report.


Project Ride Smart Video

It's a great time of year to hop on bikes as a family. It teaches kids independence and healthy habits.

It's important they know all the rules of the road. Our Project Ride Smart Video is a 10-part series that teaches kids critical biking knowledge like how to ride safely on the street versus the sidewalk; right-of-way rules and how to navigate intersections. The series is hosted by two teenagers guiding young cyclists to safer bike riding.

You can stream or download the video for free. If you would like a DVD version, you can order a copy for $35. To get the video go to: Project Ride Smart Video.
