Want to be a Bike Ambassador? Yes!
This year, we are adding another layer to the work of DC Bike Ambassadors. We want to spend more time in communities typically underserved by WABA and by the bicycling improvement efforts in the District. This includes communities in Wards 4, 7 and 8, seniors, the Spanish speaking community, deaf bicyclists, and blind bicyclists. We’ll better engage with these communities by hosting rides and events, tabling at expos, fairs and festivals, and being present for community meetings that affect these communities. We’ll also work to build relationships with organizations in these communities to reach their members and share WABA’s resources with them. Finally, we’ll be biking with our public awareness trailer (if you see us, say hello!), volunteering our time with other organizations, and connecting them with the people they serve. We want DC Bike Ambassadors to be a reflection of the region’s growing bicycling community; including all communities is key. If you want to be part of this movement to attract more diverse bicyclists to the biking community, please sign up for our bi-monthly newsletter to learn more about our upcoming events and volunteer opportunities.
