Can’t wait for Bike to Work Day?

Daydreaming about stress free bikey goodness? We are too.

Here’s our suggestion: sign up for DC Bike Ride!

What’s DC Bike Ride? It’s a huge bike ride event on Sunday, May 14th with monumental views and a finish line festival.

Here are five reasons why you’ve got to sign up for DC Bike Ride:

  1. Car-free, stress-free, wide open roads to ride your bike.
  2. Music. Fun. Entertainment. DJ BIZ MARKIE! Batalá! Dupont Brass Band!
  3. A good reason to tune your bike (or test out your new ride) before your big BTWD commute.
  4. Don’t miss out: all your friends and fellow bike commuters will be there having the time of their lives.
  5. It raises funds to support our important Vision Zero advocacy work.

You can learn more about WABA’s Vision Zero advocacy work here.

We really, really hope you will sign up for DC Bike Ride and join us for this spectacular event. And don’t forget to sign up for Bike to Work Day: especially if you bike every day. This is the one day of the year to be counted (literally). Have a great Bike to Work Day.

DC Bike Ride: WABA Early Access Discount Extended

An update from our partners at DC Bike Ride:

Since the WABA Early Access registration launch on Monday, we have received great interest in DC Bike Ride within the last 48 hours. Thank you so much! The outpouring of excitement around DCBR has been great and we really appreciate your support. We will be extending the $48 discount, for WABA members only, for another 24 hours. The offer will now end on February 4.

You Asked, We Listened.
We have had a number of inquiries around our age policy and we have been paying close attention to your suggestions! At this time, we have made the decision to:

  • Adjust the participation age requirement to 3 years old as of 5/22/16
  • Offer a youth ride-along rate for children ages 3 to 7 years old at $30 per participant (we will be reaching out to all current registrants within this age group, at the provided contact information, to issue an $18 refund)
  • Eliminate the 1-to-1 adult to youth rider ratio requirement for ride-along youth ages 3 to 7; the 1-to-1 adult policy will only apply to youth riders on their own bike, ages 8 to 13

Please note, all participants must be registered regardless of age or riding method. To view DCBR’s updated Youth Rider Policy, click here.
