Jibe's Find A New Cycling Buddy series continues May 4, from 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM at Track 7 Brewing in Natomas! Come out, enjoy food truck specialties on us (no host bar), and meet potential cycling buddies!

How Does It Work?

Cyclists attending the meet and greet apply a color coded sticker to their name tag so those with similar riding styles are easily recognized. Contact information is shared at the end of the event, and participants message riders they choose. Your new cycling buddy may just be a meet, greet, and email away!
