Youth Education


WABA provides youth bicycle safety education and programming in DC public schools, as well as skills challenge courses for community events. We can also help arrange for individual lessons for kids.



WABA teaches key elements of the District Department of Transportation’s Safe Routes to School program. WABA instructors serve students in DC public and public charter schools, providing classroom and on-bike lessons. WABA maintains all materials necessary for the delivery of the program, including bikes and helmets.

If you are a teacher or a school administrator and you want to bring our program to your students, email for more information.

If you’re a parent, help us connect with your child’s school by filling out our interest form here.
