Meet Leah

We are so pleased to welcome Leah Barrett to the NNTMA team in the role of Program Assistant. A transplant from Newton, Connecticut, Leah’s a wellspring of positive energy, and is already tackling her new position. A little bit more about Leah: she graduated from Tulane in New Orleans and says she already adores the California way of life. She’s also a woman of many talents and hobbies, namely singing, dancing and acting -- and on the fitness side -- swimming, running and biking. She’s front and center in our office so please give her a welcoming “hello” when you see her!

MiBM is for Kids, Too!

Students, parents, faculty and staff get excited about May is Bike Month because of the quality time spent together, the reducion of smog, and of course...bringing home some glory! Our North Natomas schools have a lot of proven pedaling power and consistently rank in the top of the region for miles ridden in May.

Remember, it’s not just about riding to and from school, although that is encouraged and an excellent way to stack up the number of logged trips. It’s also about recreation! North Natomas is home to a bushel of parks and trails, including the brand new Spine Trail (which still needs an official name). 

Need tips on riding with young ones in tow? Check out this blog and remember to always give yourself extra time and to enjoy the journey as much as the destination!
