This Month in Education


It’s back to school month for kids and adults with WABA’s bike education programs. We have great classes for adults all September long, and our youth in-school education in D.C. is beginning to ramp back up.

Whether you don’t know how to ride a bike or are a two-wheeling veteran, WABA’s education programs have something for you. Check us out!

Adult Learn to Ride
Our most popular classes by far are our Adult Learn to Ride classes. Unfortunately, all of the classes currently scheduled are full, but you can sign up to be notified when we add more! Follow this link to sign up.

City Cycling
While we love teaching adults how to ride bikes, City Cycling is what really gets us going. The ins and outs of riding a bike on city streets can be complicated and intimidating. But it can also be fun and very rewarding! Our City Cycling class is designed to teach people how to ride in a way that is confident, comfortable, and considerate. They’re our streets, so let’s go ride ’em! Upcoming classes include:

  • Sat, Sept. 7 in Arlington
  • Sat., Sept. 14 in D.C.
  • Sat., Sept. 22 in D.C.
  • Sat., Sept. 28 in Arlington

You can find more info and sign up for City Cycling classes here.

With kids everywhere back in school, WABA’s in-school education, funded by DDOT’s Safe Routes to School program, is gearing up again. We are scheduling schools as fast as we can, but our program is limited to 13 schools per year. Keep an eye on WABA’s blog for updates on our in-school programming! If you’d like to bring WABA’s in-school bike education to your child’s school, contact DDOT’s Safe Routes to Schools coordinator. More information can be found here.
