Jibe's Earn-a-Bike program seeks to increase bicycle ridership, reduce car trips, and help swap vehicle trips for bicycle trips. This program is for cyclists 18 and over who live or work in North Natomas and want to use a bicycle to get to work, take their kids to school, visit friends, run errands...you name it.
This free 14-hour course covers topics in three main areas: bike maintenance, bike handling, and traffic skills. It includes both classroom lessons and bike riding on city streets. Participants strategize with classmates to design personalized plans on how to make bikes an easy, fun, and energizing part of life! Bikes are made available for use by participants during the course. And, when the class concludes, participants earn $450 towards a new bicycle!
