Events

WABA hosts bike rides and social events throughout the year to bring together the bicycling community. We host fun rides that create a safe and welcoming space for you. WABA’s signature events, which are member-only, paid registration rides, are fundraisers. The money we raise directly supports our advocacy, education, and outreach work. More simply: when you participate in a WABA event, you fuel our efforts to build a more bike-friendly region.

See the event listings below for registration information and details for upcoming events. To learn more about sponsoring a signature event, email business@waba.org. If you’d like to advertise your own event, please click here. For any other event questions, email events@waba.org.
