We’re so excited that one of the best bike days of the year, Bike to Work Day, is quickly approaching on Friday, May 17th! It’s WABA’s biggest membership drive and we want to be at as many pit stops as we can – will you help us? We rely on our volunteers to help sell memberships to the thousands of riders on their ways to work.
Bike to Work Day will take place rain or shine! Interested in volunteering? Email email@example.com
Who is ready to talk about WABA membership this week? We are!
Join our community of invested, enthusiastic people committed to making our region more bike-friendly and accessible.
Biking is a great way to be a part of your community.
What’s your favorite part of biking in your neighborhood? Do you wave hello to the same people on your commute every day? How does biking affect your view of your community and the spaces you navigate every day?
Every day, we’re working to make our shared spaces more friendly and more bikeable for everyone. But we can’t do it without you!
Join us for an evening – tonight! – of calling fellow WABA members and supporters to get the word out about our the Membership Drive! We’ll provide a script, refreshments, and good company. Bring your phone and get ready to chat about WABA’s work in the region. In exchange for two hours of calls, we’ll give you a year’s membership and the newest WABA t-shirt! More details here.

I’m Hannah Anderson-Dana, the new Membership and Development Coordinator at WABA. I’m so excited to be part of the Development team and get to know our great members!
Growing up in the very bike friendly Portland, OR and attending college in the equally bikeable Twin Cities meant that biking was my main form of transportation, from getting to school to riding around the lakes on a nice day. After I moved to DC, I joined WABA as a member on Bike to Work Day in 2015 and I’ve had the best time learning about the bike community in the region and exploring different neighborhoods on rides. Exploring DC by bike made the city really feel like home!
I most recently worked at a civics non-profit, where I was always trying to convince my coworkers to bike to work or on the weekends. Needless to say, that’s taken care of at WABA!
I hope to enhance and expand WABA’s already amazing membership program and to continue making connections in our community through biking. If you have thoughts or feedback about our membership program and how we can grow it, please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I can’t wait to meet you!
