Thank you for joining the Washington Area Bicyclist Association at our second annual Bicyclists’ Choice Awards on Thursday, February 25th. The event was an awesome celebration of the people and places that make our region a great place to ride a bike, and it was all because you helped us celebrate them!
Stay tuned for information about next year’s event which will take place in early 2017.

What is the Bicyclists’ Choice Awards?
The Bicyclists’ Choice Awards event was held for the first time in 2015. It is WABA’s way of hosting a fun party event that our members and supporters would want to attend during which we could also recognize and thank some of the most important bike-friendly people, businesses, and places within the region. The event is also a way to make advocacy fun and entertaining, and to share our advocacy mission, work, and the successes across the region with all of our members and supporters.
The event itself features two different awards categories:
- Bicyclists’ Choice Awards are nominated and voted on by the public.
- WABA Awards, selected by the WABA Board and staff, are awarded to people who did tremendous things for biking in 2016 that the general public may not necessarily know about.
