Why I Ride: Bobbie Chevis

While most Flyer Riders cite dollars and cents as reasons for riding the shuttle to their downtown job, Bobbie Chevis takes a different route. “Riding into work in the morning, I realize how much of Sacramento I have a chance to see while on the shuttle.” Like the iconic Sacramento River in the morning, “smooth as glass,” she says.

She also rides for the community aspect, like her Flyer driver who knows everyone (and everyone’s pets), and her “bus buddies."

“I truly believe our fantastic driver, Dee, is responsible for bringing everyone together. Our NNTMA shuttle is more like a small neighborhood of friends.”

Check out other riders' reasons in the Why I Ride series.

Creekside Fair: Fall Festival with Bike Valet

We are going to let you in on a little secret: Fall might be one of our favorite seasons of the year, in part because of the beautiful biking weather it brings!

Here’s one free-wheeling North Natomas destination you don’t want to miss -- The Creekside Fair on October 26th at Kokomo Park, presented by Mayor Pro Tem Angelique Ashby.

On tap will be live music, BBQ, face painters, balloon twisters, bounce houses, carnival games, pumpkin painting and, of course, a FREE Bike Valet! As an added perk, free bike lights will be given to all of those who ride to the event.
