Bike to Work Week & Beyond: BTWD, BikeDC, BikeFest

With so much bike-related going on this week and over the next month, here is a very quick list of the top items and the links you need:

Bike to Work Day, Friday, May 20th.  Over 8,000 registered.  Still aiming for 10,000.  WABA staff, board members, and volunteers will be throughout the region at pitstops, in addition to operating the Freedom Plaza pitstop.  If any part of your commute on Friday takes place by bike, REGISTER HERE and be counted.


BikeDC, Sunday, May 22nd.  Closed streets, riding at your own pace, coasting down the GW Parkway with other cyclists.  BikeDC is 20 miles of no cars and great views, and perfect way to spend a Sunday. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER.

BikeFEST, Saturday, June 11th.  BikeFEST is the summer’s hottest ticket.  A bike-carnival themed fundraiser and celebration of cycling in the region: there will be bike art, music, games, raffles, a live auction, and a bike-build contest between local bike shops using recycled parts & held to a strict price limit of $250.  It’s a fun way to celebrate cycling and help support our serious mission to get more people onto bikes and make cycling safer and better for all.  CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS.
