Let’s ride into 2021 together.

2021 is in sight — and we’ve got a good tailwind thanks to a generous WABA donor who is matching your gifts, up to $50,000, between now and midnight. Can you make a gift right now to help WABA ride strong into the new year, and see its impact double?

We have $30,000 to go to meet our goal! So before you do your thing tonight to bid adieu to this strange and hard year (at home, with your household), celebrate by investing in a better 2021: 

  • More bike lanes, so it’s easier to use your bike to run errands, get to and from work, and safely visit your loved ones.
  • More trails, so we can more easily go for a ride or hike on a weekend afternoon.
  • Better policies that prioritize people over cars, so more people are empowered to safely bike, walk, scoot where they need to go.

This matching gift, up to $50,000, is a phenomenal show of faith in the WABA community to make it happen — we’re counting on you. Your support means a just and sustainable transportation system where biking, walking, and transit are the best ways to get around.

Can you make a gift today to invest in that vision, and make 2021 better for you, your neighborhood, and the whole region?

BIG news for better bicycling in 2021…

A generous donor has made an incredible pledge to get WABA across the 2020 finish line: she’s going to match your gifts, up to $50,000, doubling the impact of your support for more bike lanes and better bicycling all around — as long as you give before the clock strikes 2021. 

Will you make a gift today to make 2021 better for you, your neighborhood, and the region?

Here’s what’s on the horizon for WABA, our region, and our bicycling community in the coming year, with your investment: 

  • More bike lanes. In 2020 we pushed harder than ever, and completely changed the game—setting the stage for even more progress in the coming year.
  • A connected multi-use trail network. More than 10 miles of trails are under construction right now, and with your support, we’ll reprioritize federal transportation funding from highway projects (that won’t even diminish traffic!) to trail projects.
  • Culture shift. Our work is at the intersection of so many critical issues: racial justice, climate crises, affordable housing, transportation equity, and more. In the coming year, WABA is committed to contextualizing our vision of a just and sustainable transportation system within work for a region that’s just and sustainable as a whole. 
  • Power building. With training and support from WABA, community advocates like you will put more pressure on elected officials to transform streets at the block-by-block level. 
  • More everyday WABA goodness. Online and on the ground — from fix-a-flat webinars to safe group events, 2021 will bring more classes, trainings, and rides to keep us together. 

We’re glad you’re on this ride with us— $50,000 is a big goal, and we have never been challenged by such a generous match before. We couldn’t do this work without you beside us. 

Will you give to WABA today, to show your support for bicycling in 2021?

What’s on the horizon for WABA in 2021

WABA’s network of volunteers, advocates, neighbors, friends, and family made bicycling better—and kept WABA strong and steady!— in 2020.

Now, as we brace ourselves for 2021, we know that community is more important than ever. We made progress over the past year, and we’re celebrating it. But there’s still work to do building a region where you and your neighbors can safely explore, learn, and unlock the superpowers that come with riding a bike— and we’re counting on your support to do it.

Here’s what’s on the horizon for 2021 as WABA keeps working to make your ride— and our region— better:

  • More bike lanes. In 2020 we pushed harder than ever, and completely changed the game—setting the stage for even more progress in the coming year.
  • A connected multi-use trail network. More than 10 miles of trails are under construction right now, and with your support, we’ll reprioritize federal transportation funding from highway projects (that won’t even diminish traffic!) to trail projects.
  • Culture shift. Our work is at the intersection of so many critical issues: racial justice, climate crises, affordable housing, transportation equity, and more. In the coming year, WABA is committed to contextualizing our vision of a just and sustainable transportation system within work for a region that’s just and sustainable as a whole. 
  • Power building. With training and support from WABA, community advocates like you will put more pressure on elected officials to transform streets at the block-by-block level. 
  • More everyday WABA goodness. Online and on the ground —  from fix-a-flat webinars to safe group events, 2021 will bring more classes, trainings, and rides to keep us together. 

These are just a few of the ways WABA will empower people to ride bikes, build connections, and transform places in 2021.
