This weekend, WABA’s presence east of the river was strong! East of the river associate Kim Davis led the recurring Easy Riders ride to the second annual Lumen8Anacostia festival. The group ambled along the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail and ended at the Anacostia Arts Center. Easy Riders rides are slow-paced, no-drop, family-friendly, recurring rides. See this flyer for dates of future Easy Riders rides. We set up a table at Lumen8 to promote WABA’s work, especially east of the river. And our first bike-repair clinic, put on in partnership with The Bike House, was a success. Clinics will be held the second and fourth Saturdays of the month through August. See the east of the river program page for more information.
