 Bike Repairs for Free! That's Where Bike Doc Steps In.

While Bike Doc may not make house calls,  there are several events scheduled through June in North Natomas. Bike Doc is a free mobile bike repair station created and sponsored by the North Natomas TMA. Bike mechanics fix flat tires, do break adjustments, wheel alignments and much more. The goal is to get your bike in tip top riding shape.

Bike Doc is first come, first served, so get in line early. One bike per person. See the list of April dates and click here to check out the events through June.

  • Bike Doc at Food Truck Mania North Natomas Library 4/20, 5-8pm

  • Bike Doc at The Club at Natomas Park, 4/22, 9-12pm

  • Bike Doc at Terracina Meadows Apartments, 4/24, 4-7pm

Food, Free Bike Repairs, Low Cost Helmets and Bike Valet!

Where can you get all of these things in one place? At Food Truck Mania at the North Natomas Library.

If your bike needs a repair, stop by the Bike Doc station. If your bike is in good shape and you want to park it at the event, don't worry about searching for a spot. That's where Free Bike Valet comes in. We all know it's important to wear a bike helmet when riding. If you haven't bought a new one in years, now's your chance. The North Natomas TMA is selling bike helmets for $5.00. Staff will make sure your helmet fits properly. A helmet needs to fit the rider well so it can do it's job.

We can't forget about the food. Several food trucks from the Sacramento area will be selling their cuisine.

All the fun at the North Natomas Library is Thursday, April 20th, 5 - 8 pm.
