Time To Tickle Your Senses

Jibe invites students from area schools to engage their senses in a fun game of Five Senses Bingo! Participants make note of the things they see, hear, smell, touch, or taste while enjoying a bike ride or other outdoor activity. Simply print your school's bingo card to play.

Return your card by January 29 for a chance to win a fun prize pack!

 

Share Your Story!

Jibe and the City Of Sacramento's Office of Arts and Culture have joined forces on an oral history project which will result in an art installation at a central location in North Natomas! While all the pieces are coming together for this exciting project, one key element is missing...you!

Last Call

Student art currently beautifying fences at H. Allen Hight Elementary, Natomas Park Elementary, Paso Verde School, Star Academy, and Witter Ranch Elementary will be removed February 1st.

Student art banners make a great finish line destination on a fun walk or bike ride, either solo or with your family. Make a plan to visit them before they come down!

 

Better on Bikes, Part Two!

Riders (even wanna be riders!) aged 50 and above will be pleased to learn that Jibe and AARP California have teamed up to offer another round of Better on Bikes classes. The online trainings will boost bicycle confidence so participants can get out there and ride the friendly streets of North Natomas. Applications accepted through January 31st.

The first offering of Better on Bikes 2020 culminated into a regular riding group led by instructor Arlete Hodel that logged almost 3,400 miles last year. Clearly this group gained enough confidence via Better on Bikes to hit the road with gusto! We look forward to seeing what the class of 2021 will achieve.

As part of the City of Sacramento's efforts to make our city friendlier for bicycling, a new 1.25 mile bike path in North Natomas was recently completed.

Located between Del Paso Road and Arena Boulevard, behind the Centene campus and adjacent hotels, the tree lined path was developed with input from Jibe, WalkSacramento, and the North Natomas Community Coalition.

Enjoy this trail among many other local options available for all of us to to walk and ride our bikes!
