Volunteers are integral to WABA’s events, office management, advocacy, education, and outreach initiatives.

Volunteer opportunities will be posted on this page as they emerge. The best way to stay up-to-date with our volunteer needs are to sign up for our Volunteer and Event Hub email blasts (sign up here or to the right) and follow us on Twitter and Facebook.

Become a DC Ambassador

Ongoing opportunities

WABA’s outreach team is recruiting a community of volunteers to inspire more bicycling in the District. You can catch the Bike Ambassadors at community events, health fairs, street corners, near trails and major stretches of bike infrastructure, and pulling their billboard on wheels to encourage safe and responsible road use. Bike Ambassadors are at various locations to help answer questions about biking in DC and share tips on how to bike safely. Want to get more involved in the DC region’s biking community, be a DC Bike Ambassador and help celebrate biking all around the DC region. Click here to sign up and join us at our next event!

Volunteer at a WABA Signature Event

Ongoing opportunities

WABA relies on the support of hundreds of volunteers each year to make our signature events a success, including ride marshals, check-in and pitstop support, and office packing. Learn about the upcoming opportunities by getting on the volunteer listserv to the right.

20×20 Campaign

Ongoing opportunties

We envision 20 miles of additional protected bike lanes in the District by the end of 2020 that are connected, protected and equitable. Our timeline is aggressive, but it’s realistic — we just need you and your neighbors to stand with us. Want to get involved with your fellow community advocates in your own Ward? We can’t get those 20 miles built without community support. Please join us! Sign up here.
