Introducing Mad Bomber, a WABA Business Member

WABA’s Business Members understand the importance of a community that bicycles. Their membership supports our advocacy, outreach and education. Our business members are committed to a sustainable future of our region and are adding their voice to a growing number of bicycle-friendly businesses supporting WABA. Today meet Mad Bomber.

The Mad Bomber Company is pleased to join WABA as a Business Member.  As a manufacturer of hats and outerwear products that combine natural resources with innovative high-tech fabrics, we’re also the world’s original and largest Bomber/Aviator hat manufacturer.  Our brand has always been both functional and quirky, appealing to a wide range of tastes and ages – and everyone from hunters to today’s urban customers.

Our hats are a modern take on a style that was standard equipment for military aviators on bitter cold, high-altitude flights and bombing runs.  Our rabbit fur insulation and quilted recycled nylon crown lining create a soft, natural barrier to wind and cold.  We’ve also expanded our line to include Faux Fur, Polar Fleece, Knits, gloves, Polo Shirts, Merino Wool Baselayers… and we recently introduced a line of hats proudly made right here in the USA!

With a distribution network that covers Europe, Asia, Russia, and North and South America, Mad Bomber takes a green approach to product design and manufacturing.  Using recycled and organic cottons and other materials allows us to support farmers near our manufacturing plants who are in touch with their environment.

Our feeling is that there are many heads around the world that need hats – about six billion, the last time we counted.  And although there’s only one Mad bomber Company, we’re ready to meet that demand… one ultra-cool hat at a time.

We’re proud to be a member of WABA – partly because so many of our customers are passionate about their own personal sports… and partly because we just love WABA and its mission.  In fact, our founder and president has been personally involved in matters important to local bicyclists, including serving for a couple of years as a member and Chair of the Fairfax Trails and Sidewalks Committee.

We’re passionate about making events and venues more bike-friendly.  Whether you’re an event planner looking for a one-time parking solution or an institutional location looking to offer permanent, premium bicycle parking, Two Wheel Valet makes it easy and 100% user friendly.  Offering a bike valet at events, universities, stadiums, and real estate developments has proven to increase bicycle mode share.  Our services are sponsored by event organizers, sponsors, or institutions to make the service free for users.  This helps to incentivize bike travel, reduces the need for pricey parking spaces, and helps promote healthy living.

Our attendants take care of all of the logistics for your two-wheeled guests and tenants.  Security is out highest priority, which gives users peace of mind and breaks down one of the biggest barriers to cycling – fear of theft.  Our electronic check-in system sends a text claim-check ID to users’ phones, making Two Wheel Valet faster and more secure than using clunky locks and cables.

We provide bike valet services for events and venues of all sizes.  Two Wheel valet was founded in 2013 and has operated multiple large-scale valets in the DC area.  We are great for smaller events, too! We regularly provide valet service at events like NoMa Summer Screen, Anacostia River Fest, and the Arlington County Fair.

We recently launched daily valet service for brick-and-mortar locations like real estate developments, universities, and stadiums/arenas.  Many buildings and venues are already offering bike valets, and we expect the trent to gain momentum.  Daily valet also includes mechanic service and has proven to encourage regular cycling. This is a low-cost alternative for organizations looking to ease parking demands, relieve public transit, and offer an alternative to overcrowded roads.

Get in touch with us today for a free consultation. We can’t wait to help your organization become more bike-friendly!

Introducing Recess Outings, a WABA Business Member!

WABA’s Business Members understand the importance of a community that bicycles. Their membership supports our advocacy, outreach and education. Our business members are committed to a sustainable future of our region and are adding their voice to a growing number of bicycle-friendly businesses supporting WABA. Today meet Recess Outings.

Recess Outings is a family-friendly bicycle outing company created for adults who want to bring their young children for a ride.

Founder Kate Gallery has been biking with her two-year-old daughter for a little over a year. As an avid rider she sorely missed biking towards the end of her pregnancy, and during those first months adjusting to life with a newborn she was eager to get started and share her love for spending time outdoors on a bike with the new addition to the family. Biking together quickly proved to be as fun as hoped, and Kate started Recess Outings that summer when her daughter was one year old.

Recess Outings has a small fleet of bikes with attachable child seats available so parents and young children can simply sign up and join them for a D.C. ride. Helmets, equipment, snacks and logistics are taken care of so they don’t have to worry about any details beyond getting out the door. As a local, neighborhood business owner, Kate loves D.C. and scouts routes endlessly to make riding through the city as smooth as possible, taking advantage of the city’s safe and convenient infrastructure and beautiful trails.

Current ride offerings focus on recreationally exploring DC with rides like “Rollin’ on the River” on the Anacostia and “To Market, to Market” from Eastern to Union Market and back, and getting parents comfortable biking with toddlers with their “Precious Cargo” rides. Recess Outings is also excited to announce the “That’s My Girl!” ride series for tough little girls and the grownups who support them. These monthly rides will explore DC and pedal past several monuments and landmarks devoted to inspirational women.
