Teaching New Cyclists & Fixing Bikes at Anacostia Library: East of the Anacostia Program Update

Last Saturday, WABA held a Learn to Ride class for adults and a Mobile Bike Shop at Anacostia Public Library.  After weeks of community-based outreach from our Bike Ambassadors and dedicated neighbors, the turnout was excellent.  You can read more about the Learn to Ride class HERE, as covered by DCentric.  Photos from the class and Mobile Bike Shop event are below.

We are grateful to all who donated to this program and enabled us to hold these outreach events.

For those keeping count:  This was our third East of the Anacostia class and second Mobile Bike Shop.  The classes are now complete for the season, but the Mobile Bike Shops will continue, and will be supplemented by a number of short rides.

And, of course, the bike and CaBi membership giveaway is still to come.

Sad I missed it. I live few blocks from the library and would love to participate when WABA returns to RIVER EAST.

Yes, The Bike House is providing mechanical support for the "mobile bike shop" portion of WABA's East of the Anacostia program.
