Events

 

WABA hosts bike rides and social events throughout the year to bring together the DC, Maryland and Virginia cycling communities. We host ride events to create a safe and welcoming space to ride your bike and to be a positive celebration of bicycling. WABA events bring awareness to and help support our ongoing advocacy, education and outreach initiatives. When you participate in a WABA event, you help fuel our ongoing efforts to build a more bike-friendly region.
