The Earn-a-Bike program provides individuals who live or work in North Natomas with the opportunity to participate in a hands-on bicycle course to earn $450 towards a new bicycle. The program is open to those 18 and over, looking to use a bicycle to get to work, take their kids to school, visit friends, run errands...you name it. We want to help people swap vehicle trips for bicycle trips.
The 14-hour course covers topics in three main areas: bike maintenance, bike handling, and traffic skills. The course is taught by League of American Bicyclists certified instructors and held at Inderkum High School.
Thirteen people participated in the program this year. The class graduated in April. Congratulations to the Earn-a-Bike class of 2019.
