The Leaves Fall and Bike Doc Carries On

Got a squeaky wheel? Brakes feeling a little bare? Never fear, Bike Doc is here! This unique mobile repair shop visits schools, businesses, and community events with a team of bike mechanics to diagnose, tune up, and repair your bicycle -- for free. With over 600 bikes already fixed in 2019, there are only a couple more opportunities to get your bike riding more smoothly this year.

The Bike Doc's Rotations

  • Saturday, September 28, 8 a.m. - 12 p.m. at the North Natomas Farmers Market
  • Sunday, October 20, 1 - 4 p.m. at the Creekside Fair at Kokomo Park

Can't make an event? You got this. There are bike fix-it stations scattered throughout the community. It's a great place to DIY your tune-up. Find the one nearest you on our North Natomas Bikeways Map.

(Round Round) Get Around with 511

What do you do when you're here and you need to get there? If you share our passion for smart and healthy transportation, you might use SacRegion511.org, the web-based service that helps you know your options with a unique focus on ridesharing. Register your commute and see who might join you in saving gas, reducing congestion, and spending less time behind the wheel. You can also find alternative options such as public transportation, Zipcar, and JUMP. Did we mention there are prizes? Yes, prizes even beyond the health benefits of multi-modal transportation.

Login today and find out about upcoming challenges.

Slow Your Roll

Attention, Sacramento drivers. You are now required to slow down even more when driving through a school zone. That's because the city council voted to reduce the speed limit from 25 mph to 15 mph. In 2016, the California Office of Traffic Safety released a list that ranked Sacramento #1 for having the most traffic-related pedestrian deaths for people under the age of 15. That unpleasant news spawned an effort to change all that. The result is Sacramento's Vision Zero plan, which focuses on different ways to eliminate traffic injuries. That's something we can all support.

The More You (and Your Kids) Know...

Biking is best done responsibly and safely, but how does one acquire such wisdom? One of the best ways is Project Ride Smart. It's essentially a 5th grade driver's ed, but for bikes. The 10-hour course, led by certified bike instructors, teaches traffic principles and on-bike handling skills, and it culminates with rides on neighborhood streets.

This fall, Project Ride Smart is heading to Natomas Park Elementary and Westlake Charter. Not your school? Not to worry! Anyone can learn some skills by checking out our video series. It's made for kids, but adults won't mind watching it together with them. It's quality family learning time. BYO-Popcorn.
