WABA is a DC Bike Ride Founding Partner. This means the organizers of DCBR are paying for our promotion of the ride. In addition, DCBR organizers are making a substantial grant to support WABA’s advocacy work and community organizing for Vision Zero. So, while we are not directly involved in the operation of the event, we’re thrilled it’s taking place and invested in its success.
You should sign up. It’s going to be great.
