Places you can help
Need a bike to get around during the pandemic?
You have a few options:
Bike shops are considered essential businesses in all three states and many are still open. Call first or connect on social media because they are all operating with safety precautions and slightly different procedures.
Some local folks have put together this handy tool to help people donate bikes to people who need them.
Stuck in your house because you or someone else in your household has symptoms?
Here are a number of volunteer organizations and mutual aid groups doing delivery and support:
District of Columbia: DC Food Project
Just generally freaked out?
Us too. Grief, trauma and instability are hitting all of us in a variety of ways. Be kind to yourself and your communities. That might be going for a bike ride or it might be curling up on the couch. We’ve got weekly virtual coffee hour and happy hour if you want to just talk with people about bikes, not bikes, or the impossibilities of doing three jobs at the same time, all the details at waba.org/fun.
