Ride the Hains Point 100 for WABA’s Women & Bicycles Program

Will you be in town on Sun., Dec. 23? Ride the Hains Point 100!

WABA member Megan Jones will be riding 100 miles around Hains Point to raise money for WABA’s Women & Bicycles program, which will launch next year. Follow the steps to donate to Megan’s ride here, or bring cash on Sunday.

You don’t have to ride to donate, and you don’t have to commit to 100 miles to participate. Do as many laps of Hains Point as you’re comfortable with, move at your own pace, ride with a group, or ride solo—on whatever bike you want (we heard that Capital Bikeshare has even put together a relay team). Don’t hesitate to dress up or decorate your bike!

Do keep in mind that this is a largely unsupported ride, so you may be on your own for repairs, water, and snacks of your preference. Megan is casually crowdsourcing snacks and treats, however, so feel free to bring something to share and treat breaks in your ride like a big, communal picnic.

In-kind donations have been made by Revolution Cycles, Bike Arlington, New Belgium Brewing Company, Sticky Fingers Bakery, and the Java Shack. If you’re interested in contributing something, fill out this form.

A Facebook event with additional information is here, and you can follow the event on Twitter for real(ish)-time updates. RSVP for the ride here.

Gather at the southern end of Hains Point by 9:30 a.m. this Sunday, and be ready to ride at 10 a.m.!
