I represented Jibe at this event. Heritage Park is a 55+ gated community with 965 homes (twice as big as my 55+ community).
It took place in the ballroom. About 30 vendors were there.
The crowd is about to arrive.
Surprise: Leslie Weisgerber was there helping her daughter-in-law Alexandra who works for the Alzheimer’s Association.
This morning, beginning at 6am, I rode the Midwest route for Jibe Express three times to downtown and back. This is my favorite route because it picks up quite a few people in front of Four Seasons Westshore.
I handed out muffins, reminded riders of Jibe services, and took suggestions, comments, compliments, etc. By far, most of the compliments went to Juan the driver. He knows everyone’s name and maybe a little something that’s going on in their lives.
The yellow blouse is the latest Jibe work shirt. Here’s the back:
Wednesday and Thursday morning at o’dark 30, I met a Jibe Express bus at the starting point of their route. I did three routes each morning, a different route/driver each day. I offered a fresh muffin from Bella Bru Cafe to each passenger that boarded. Once the bus got on the freeway headed to downtown Sacramento, I reminded them of upcoming changes, holiday hours, the free emergency ride home service, and how they could track the buses in real time using a new app, and took feedback if there was any. After dropping off the last passenger, we headed back to the start of the route again.
By 9 am each day I was done. What a fun job!
A nearby North Natomas neighborhood – Hampton Gardens – had a community potluck at
and I was the representative for Jibe.
It was a fun event and very well organized. The guys from Dos Coyotes were giving out delicious Frito Pie and chips and salsa.
Bike Doc was there:
Everyone enjoyed the zumba class:
Today, I worked at Jibe for a few hours. (Hurray, an opportunity to get out of the house and do something productive). Three LCIs worked on their final certification to teach Project Ride Smart by presenting classroom lessons and receiving feedback from Mellissa and me. Here Veronica, Dana, Lorge, and Mellissa get ready for the street rides; I drove and followed them, getting out at the various teaching stops:
Sue Schooley and Lorge Quant presented the day’s activities. Not a street ride but other fun things you can do on a bicycle.
My helpers for the Slow Race for one class: repeatedly they raced to shout “On your mark, get set, go slow!”
The person who crossed the finish line LAST without touching a foot to the ground was the winner.
Lorge did Rock Dodge (with mixed success):
Sue did the Bean Drop.
