The D.C. Bike Ambassador program, funded through a partnership with the District Department of Transportation, is an outreach and encouragement program that promotes safe bicycling for fun, fitness, and transportation to everyone in D.C.
The D.C. Bike Ambassador program seeks to:
- Encourage more D.C. residents and visitors to try bicycling
- Educate bicyclists, drivers, and pedestrians on the safe use of roads, sidewalks, and trails
- Reduce barriers that prevent people from bicycling
- Provide resources to make the choice to travel by bike an easy and safe one
- Model good behavior and respectful, safe road use for everyone
Bike ambassadors make these goals a reality by being visible within D.C., distributing maps, information, and encouragement at key points around the city. You can catch the bike ambassadors at community events, health fairs, near trails and major stretches of bike infrastructure, and pulling their billboard on wheels to encourage safe and responsible road use.
Be a Bike Ambassador!
Bike ambassadors are volunteers who are enthusiastic about spreading the word of safe cycling. If you’d like to volunteer for the Bike Ambassador program, attend a training session (sessions are typically held monthly). Check our calendar for the next bike ambassador orientation night.
