On Sept. 28, WABA led the second annual Lion Ride, a slow, beginner-friendly ride that meandered from Anacostia Park to the Frederick Douglass historic site in Anacostia.
Ride participants enjoyed Anacostia’s low-traffic, residential roads and learned how to access bike-friendly connections between the neighborhood and the park. See more photos below the jump.
For a few hours last Friday, the D.C. Bike Ambassadors transformed a single metered parking space outside of WABA’s Adams Morgan office into a tiny temporary park.
PARK(ing) Day is an annual event dedicated to transforming car parking spaces into public spaces for people. The project began in San Francisco in 2005, and D.C. hosted a PARK(ing) Day for the first time in four years this year. What started as a guerilla-style event has now been embraced by city officials. This year, DDOT allowed any organization to apply for a permit to create a mini pop-up park as long as they had a proof of insurance and promised to only occupy the space from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
The idea behind the Bike Ambassador’s “park” was to provide a safe spot for bicyclists, and an information booth to those wanting to learn more. We created a bicycling photo booth and asked folks to share why they bike!
The interactive “park” we set up was a fantastic way to get folks to consider bicycling!

The 50 States and 13 Colonies rides are WABA’s signature events: The former is a grueling—but fascinating—trek through all of D.C.’s 50 state-named streets, while the latter is a more relaxed exploration. Before we present a full recap of the event, we wanted to share with you some photos we and others snapped this past Saturday.

Last week, we announced our new Flickr pool, for any sort of cycling-related photos in the D.C. region. There have been great additions, like the above photo by Flickr user Joe in DC from the 2012 Diamond Derby. Thanks to everyone who’s contributed so far! We hope to grow the Flickr pool into not just a collection of shots from WABA events, but also a visual resource of area cycling infrastructure, activities, and people.
Remember to add your photos to the WABA Flickr pool when you upload them. We appreciate it!
