Walktober Encourages North Natomas Students To "Walk Across America"

Walktober is an annual challenge to North Natomas students to ditch the car and walk, bike, skate or scoot to school throughout the month of October. This year, we put forth the exciting goal to "walk" the distance from Sacramento to New York City.

New Bike Fix-It Station At Heritage Park Clubhouse

The Heritage Park Clubhouse is now home to a bicycle fix-it station. This past August the self-service repair station was installed near the front door. The project was a partnership between the Heritage Park Bike Club, Heritage Park Owners Association and the NNTMA. By installing the station, residents now have an opportunity to pump their own tires, perform basic bike maintenance and enjoy a smooth riding bicycles.

To celebrate the installation, some residents got a quick tutorial on the station and how to use the tire pump and tools by a League of American Bicyclists cycling instructor. Happy riding to our Heritage Park friends!

This is the second bicycle fix-it station installed in North Natomas. The first is located at the North Natomas Library. Stay tuned for more stations in the future.
