WABA's Bike Ambassador Program is a bicycle outreach and encouragement program esigned to promote safe bicycling for fun, for fitness and for transportation to everyone in DC. The program is made possible through our partnership with the District Department of Transportation (DDOT).
The DC Bike Ambassadors are volunteer educators and enthusiasts who work to bring better bicycling to the people of the District. Bike Ambassadors love bikes, have an enthusiastic personality, and effective communication skills.
