May + Bicycles = 2M

Two million may seem like a big number, but when it comes to May is Bike Month, Sacramento has shown the world that it’s within reach. We are almost half way through MiBM and it’s time to strap on the helmets and grease the gears for the last push to make our goals as a community. Here’s what you can do to help:

1. Register and log your miles! You can even add miles you’ve already biked so far. We also encourage members of the Club at Natomas Park to register under the team of the same name.

2. Ride social! Share bike-related posts and photos with the hashtags #iBikeNN and #31reasonstobike! We love seeing all the bike fun happening around North Natomas.

3. If nothing else, do it for the socks. Yes, we will be giving away coveted MiBM socks to selected North Natomas winners. Just ride your bike to the Flyer Shuttle and use the bike racks. Watch our instructional video to see how they work.

Spare the Air Season is Upon Us

Did you know that Sacramento will issue a Spare the Air alert on days when the Air Quality Index (AQI) for ground-level ozone pollution is expected to reach 127 or higher? When the advisory is issued, residents are encouraged to leave the car at home and take extra precautions to keep themselves safe from over exposure. To help keep our community healthy, the Flyer Shuttle is free on Spare the Air days.

Sign up for Spare the Air alerts.

Let Your Love of Biking Turn the Page

If you can’t get enough time behind the handlebars, why not extend your enjoyment of bicycles to the realm of reading? The NNTMA has donated books on biking, ranging from historical to fiction to educational, to several North Natomas school libraries. If your kids attend Witter Ranch Elementary, Westlake Charter, Natomas Park Elementary, H. Allen Hight Elementary, Regency Park Elementary or Heron School, just ask your librarian what’s new on the shelves!
