One Last Roll…

before we call it a season on our Neighborhood Rides series. On October 13th, we pedal through the falling leaves of William Land Park via Discovery and Miller Parks. Then, after a mouth-watering stop at Marie’s Donuts, home of the famous blueberry fritter, we swing by the Tile House in Curtis Park and back home. This trip totals about 31 miles and begins at our office. Please arrive before 8:30 a.m. so you have time to sign in. As always, don’t forget a helmet, water and an extra bike tube. No need to RSVP – just show up. For more information about each ride, visit us at www.nntma.org.

Flyer Rewards: Sweet October

Forget Kit Kat’s and candy corn next month and get your sweet tooth sated with a free small yogurt from Yogurt Garden, our new Flyer Rewards partner for the entire month of October. In order to receive your reward, you must ride the Flyer Shuttle and register online.

We’d also like to say a big “Thank You!” to our September sponsor, Bella Bru! Did you enjoy it, too? Let us know if you have ideas or suggestions for future Flyer Rewards partners. We’d love to hear from you.

50 Bikes for 50 Kids

The TMA is very excited to announce our new 50 Bikes for 50 Kids program coming in January 2013. This community service event will match 50 well-deserving youth with trained volunteers to assemble bikes for each child. These “volunteer engineers” hail from local community organizations and businesses, and range from bike enthusiasts to mechanical curiosity seekers. When the teams are finished, the youngsters come away with not only a new bike, but valuable hands-on experience in teamwork, mechanics and the workings of a bicycle.

Bike recipients are nominated by local organizations based on a demonstration of the “Six Pillars of Character” by the Jensen’s Institute: “Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship.” Stay tuned in October for ways YOU can get involved!

Walktober is Nothing to Fear

It’s that time of year when ghosts and goblins abound and grocery stores are stocked full of giant bags of mini-chocolates, but October isn’t just for tricks and treats. It means the official start of our school-based “Walktober” and the good news is kids don’t have to wait until the 31st to have fun and earn goodies. To join in the fun, students just walk, bike, scooter or skate to school and back as many times as possible to earn prizes. Walking every day earns kids a chance at  the grand prize!

Tracking sheets are available at each participating school and must be turned in at the end of the month in order to earn prizes that differ based on the number of trips walked. The top class at each school will win a prize, too! Here is a list of participating schools:

Natomas Park Elementary
Witter Ranch Elementary
H. Allen Hight Elementary
Heron School
Regency Park Elementary

October – Low-Car Challenge

Get ready to earn double points for logging your walking, bicycling, transit, vanpooling, carpooling, and telecommuting trips in the Commuter Club Trip Diary for the October Low-Car Challenge. For the whole month of October residents of the Sacramento region are issued a challenge to reduce the number of miles that they drive alone.

In addition to saving money on gas and parking, the double points you earn will allow you to compete for great new prizes including a Google Nexus tablet. You can also be entered into drawings for gift cards for trying a new travel mode during the month.

Bike Doc = Strength in Numbers

There’s nothing like a little number crunching to shed light on a subject. Today’s stats unveil the good work done by our Bike Doc so far this year.  To date, fixies, cruisers, road bikes, BMX’s, adult trikes and even a bicycle built for two have been shipped into shape in the form of brake and chain adjustments, bike fittings, training wheel removals, and exactly 125 flat tires fixed. Total number of bikes put back into ride ready condition? 513! Help us get to 600 by bringing your problematic pony to one of our next events:

• Community Green Event 2012, Oct. 13th from 10 a.m. -1 p.m. in the Natomas Park Clubhouse west parking lot.
• Creekside Fair, Oct. 21st from 10 a.m. -1 p.m. at  Kokomo Park

Flyer Friendly Fact #21

Cushions are well-known for their assistance in making things in life more comfortable. This couldn’t be truer than when it comes to catching things like trains and busses. The conscientious rider always gives themselves a time cushion by arriving to their stop a few minutes before the time listed on the schedule, and does not bet on delays. Betting is just risky business -- not just for you but for all of your bus mates who need to get to work on time.

RT Thanks Riders and Celebrates "Ride Transit October"

During the month of October 2012, the Sacramento Regional Transit District (RT) will conduct outreach activities and promotions to show appreciation for customers and to encourage new riders to discover the benefits of taking transit.

The “Ride Transit October” campaign will feature "Fun Fridays" at the RT Customer Service and Sales Center (located at 1225 R Street) when customers can take a spin on the prize wheel with purchase (October 5, 12, 19 and 26); "Customer Appreciation Days" when RT staff will greet customers at light rail stations and bus transfer areas (October 16, 17 and 18); and “Celebrating 25 Years of Light Rail” when RT staff will greet customers at light rail stations to commemorate the 25th anniversary of light rail in Sacramento (October 23, 24 and 25).

"Ride with the GM" is a favorite activity for Mike Wiley, RT General Manager/CEO.  Wiley, who regularly rides the system, will travel on buses and light rail trains throughout the month to interact personally with passengers and receive feedback.  Customers are encouraged to check his travel itinerary each week at www.sacrt.com.

For a complete calendar of events, and route, schedule and fare information, call 916-321-BUSS (2877) or visit www.sacrt.com.
