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.

The Cider Ride

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN! The 2016 Cider Ride is back and better than ever this year. Join us for fall bike ride from DC’s Edgewood/Brookland neighborhoods, the Northeast and Northwest Branch Trails, into Hyattsville and College Park in Prince George’s County, MD and down some beautiful farm roads around the Beltsville Agriculture Research Center.

Choose from a 47-mile route, a 23-mile route, or for the first time a family-focused 9-mile route. And of course there will be plenty of hot cider, donuts, cookies, snacks and other treats at pit stops along they way. More ride information here.

There are also volunteer opportunities for The Cider Ride! Sign up to volunteer at the start, finish, or a pit stop along the route here. Or sign up to be a ride marshal here.

Bikes, Wines, and Brews with Blue Ridge Revolutions

April through October, 2016
DC, Throughout VA

Bike Overnights and Day Trips to Vineyards & Breweries from DC: Looking to escape DC? Does wine taste better to you after a workout? Do you long to feel the wind on your face as you look out over peak after peak in the Appalachians?

Well come ride with DC’s own Blue Ridge Revolutions for our inaugural season of exhilarating day-long and weekend cycling excursions throughout rural Virginia and Maryland. Rides are fully supported, meaning we’re there to help the entire way. Rides are also all-inclusive, and we like to stop at local vineyards and breweries for some après-vélo snacks. We offer trips for every skill level, whether you prefer to meander leisurely out to Purcellville, VA, or along the James River by the plantations of colonial Jamestown and Williamsburg, or conquer the summit of ancient Mount Vesuvius on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Come ride with us at
