Resolutions you’ll keep (and that will make you feel good)
Do you make New Year’s resolutions on January 1st and then forget about them by January 18th? You’re not alone. The University of Scranton suggests that just 8% of people achieve their New year’s Resolutions. Rather than lofty goals like “ride a century” or “win that segment of Strava,” Here are a few resolutions that are easy to keep. You’ll feel like a winner at the end of 2018 if you do just one of them!
Attend a City Cycling ClassIf you are uncomfortable riding your bike on city streets, consider joining one of our City Cycling Classes. These classes are designed to help people who know how to ride feel more comfortable and confident on the road. Sign up here to be notified when the spring schedule is available.
Attend a Learn to Ride ClassIf you don’t know how to ride a bike, it’s never too late to learn. (I learned to ride a bike when I was 25, while on a date!) Last season, WABA’s instructors taught a 79-year-old, proving that nobody is too old to learn. Even better, the class is fun, and just three hours long. Don’t put it off any longer, sign up here to be notified when the spring schedule is available.
Renew your WABA membershipWABA represents more than 5,500 people who see bicycling as a solution to the traffic, health and environmental challenges we face in our community. We depend on area bicyclists like you to continue our work making bicycling a healthy and more sustainable means of transportation and recreation.

Join a Community RideThese low key rides are a great way to get started riding comfortably and confidently on city streets. Our next community ride is January 27th- Ride to the Rink. We will be riding in Ward 7 to DC’s only indoor ice rink, Ft. Dupont Ice Arena to celebrate National Ice Skating Month. We’d love to have you join us.
Learn to be an advocate in your communityHave you always wanted to know how to get a bike lane on your route to work? Or how to get a bike rack in front of your building? All of that requires advocacy. Come join us on how to be an advocate for bikey things in your neck of the woods. Learn how to be an advocate at the next workshop.
