May is Bike Month: New Year, New Challenge

Cycling two million miles in a month might seem impossible, but it’s just a bike ride away if every person in the Sacramento region joins the “May is Bike Month” movement.  The campaign aims to promote cycling by challenging the entire Capital region to pedal a total of two million miles in the month of May. You can earn badges, prizes and… honor!  Start logging your miles at www.mayisbikemonth.com  and get your May is Bike Month t-shirt. You can ride on your own, join a team, or make your own club!

Kids Rock the Two-Million Mile Challenge

Here’s a little-known secret: some of the biggest participants in the May is Bike Month movement are small in size. Students and local schools pedaled hundreds of thousands of miles toward the goal last year and are revving up to do it again! Do you have a student in your family? Please encourage them to hop on board by registering in their class.

Bike to Anywhere Day

In recognition of all those who use their own leg power to get from here to there, we salute you on Bike to Work Day! All you have to do is ride to work, errands or for pleasure on Thursday, May 16th and breakfast is on us. Just swing by our edibles outpost at the Sleep Train Arena entrance on Truxel Road, between 6 and 9 am for nourishment and networking. Look for the flags!

Fish & Farm Neighborhood Ride (New!)

What do Ella, Bouchon and the French Laundry have in common? In addition to being world-class restaurants, they also all use home-grown caviar from Sterling, one of the first sustainable caviar farms in North America. On May 11th, we will journey up the Sacramento Northern Trail, through Rio Linda to  Sterling Caviar.  After some eye-opening facts and figures about fish, we “tackle” the last leg of our cruise – a southbound trek to organic Feeding Crane Farms, a boutique farm focusing on the farm-to-table movement. Our hosts will also provide all those in our bike brigade with some treats before we head for home!

All rides depart at 8:30 a.m. from the North Natomas TMA office located at 1960 Del Paso Road.   Always bring water, a helmet, and an extra bike tube. No need to RSVP – just show up! Information is also available on our website, www.nntma.org. Want more rides? Here’s the schedule:

  • Fish & Farm Ride, May 11th: 20 miles
  • Sac St./Fab 40’s Loop,  June 8th: 24 miles
  • Davis to Winters, September 21st: 22 miles (bring money for treats)
  • West Sac Nugget Market, October 12th: 23 miles
