After Bike to Work Day, On to BikeFest (#DCBiketoWork)
Did you enjoy Bike to Work Day? We certainly did. We wanted to take this moment, while everyone is basking in that Bike to Work Day glow to also introduce you to BikeFest, our 2011 fundraiser. We absolutely love Bike to Work Day, the attention it brings to biking in DC, and the new folks it gets onto bikes. We wouldn’t miss it for the world. But putting on an event the size of the Freedom Plaza BTWD Pit Stop is expensive, and we don’t share in the funds committed by sponsors of the regional event. That means we’re largely responsible for finding funds for all that equipment, stage, food, and coffee on our own. And because the National Park Service doesn’t allow sales on Freedom Plaza, we can’t sell memberships or WABA merchandise to try to offset the cost. So if you enjoyed Bike to Work Day, appreciate WABA’s work, and want to help us fund our mission and recover costs from big outreach events like this one, we would love to see you at BikeFest on June 11th. BikeFest FAQ’s:
- What’s happening at this event?
- Why does it cost $45?
- Is this the WABA Gala? Is it the Bike Prom?
- Why is it in Crystal City?
- How do I get there?
