Volunteer at Open Streets!

Our pumpkin pop-up protected bike lane!

DC is bringing back Open Streets!

Join us on Saturday, October 1st to see and celebrate what our streets look like when we close them to cars and open them to people for walking, biking, dancing, and playing. 

The District closes three miles of Georgia Ave NW, from Barry Pl to Missouri Ave, for you to enjoy. As you make your way up and down the corridor on foot or bike, you’ll see lots of businesses and organizations with plenty of activities going on. WABA will be there, showing people what a protected bike lane on Georgia Ave could look like and encouraging people to support our efforts to get more all around the District.

Internet Coffee Hour

Brew yourself a cup of coffee or tea and come hang out on the internet with us for a bit.

Conversation is open—we often chat about weekend plans to be outside but also take questions about getting into biking, what trails are being expanded, and topics not connected to bicyclists (donuts are good!).

Register!

Hosted by a WABA staffer, this is a great chance to ask any bicycling questions! Join us anytime between 8am and 9am. And you are totally welcome to join voice or text chat only without video.
