New Bike Meet and Greets

New for 2022, Jibe is pleased to launch a series of Find a Cycling Buddy Meet-and-Greets. Cyclists of all skill levels are warmly welcomed to come out and meet potential cycling buddies. Our first Find a Cycling Buddy Meet-and-Greet will be held at the Regional Park on Tuesday, March 15, from 4:00-5:30 PM.

We'll bring the snacks, you bring a friendly attitude. Spread the word to any and all riders looking to meet other riders. We hope to see YOU there.

 

Jibe Bike Swap

Kids need a bigger bike? Want to sell or donate that bike cluttering your garage? Jibe's Bike Swap can help.

Mark your calendars for Jibe's first ever Bike Swap on May 15 at the North Natomas Aquatic Center. Sellers or cyclists wishing to sell on consignment can drop off May 13 or 14, and buyers can shop May 15th, 9 AM to 2 PM.

Come early for best selection. Details here.

 

Better on Bikes

Jibe's popular Better on Bikes program, for adults 50+ that live or work in North Natomas, is coming soon to a computer near you.

Better on Bikes participants refresh their confidence and skills via an online bicycle training course taught by a League Cycling Instructor. Registrants also gain the opportunity to connect with a like-minded community of bicycle enthusiasts while earning fun bike swag.

Join Team Good Jibes!

As part of our ongoing effort to build a community of local cyclists and promote cycling, our very own team, Team Good Jibes is participating in a few fun charity rides this year.

Let's have fun together! Find out more about these great rides and how you can join us here.

 

Why Drive When You Can Walk

North Natomas Jibe gets kids and families off on the right foot with our Walk and Bike to School program. Walking or biking to school reduces traffic, improves air quality, and establishes healthy transportation habits. Additionally, kids enjoy exercise, fresh air, and improved alertness in class.

Parent Champions scan students' cards at the school's entrance and award charms and prizes to participating kids. Volunteers help keep this program by scanning students or helping with Walking School Buses. Walking School Buses are groups of kids that walk together from a meeting point to the school's front door.

Avoid the dreaded drop off line. Learn more about Jibe's Walk to School program at your child's school here.

 

Update: Going for Navigation Gold

As you may know, Jibe installed signs on Jackrabbit Trail, Fisherman's Lake Parkway, and Red Bud Trail. In the spirit of the Winter Olympics, 'navigation athletes' entered our Go For Navigation Gold contest. Participants sought out installed signs, snapped selfies, and sent them our way.

All entrants received a handy bike tire patch kit and bike light, but congratulations to winners: Valentin Y., Cheryl L., and Milan B! Their names were drawn at random to win the grand prize -- a 26 oz. insulated water bottle.

Kudos to all Olympians for navigating the North Natomas bikeway system with us. Enjoy your prizes!
