October 12 to November 16
The Washington Area Bicyclist Association (WABA) and the Downtown Business Improvement District (DBID) invite area residents to start the weekend one day early by enjoying a ride on their bicycle to the office, to shop, to the movies, or to socialize with friends.
Bike-Friendly Fridays, which will take place between October 12 and November 16, will provide a regular opportunity to enjoy autumn in the city without the stress of driving. WABA will provide bike commuting ride leaders to help bicyclists travel from each Ward in DC to the downtown business district on Friday mornings, and will provide information online to help bicyclists find bike routes, parking, showers, and other amenities.

The Washington Area Bicyclist Association (WABA) and the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) are pleased to announce "Got Lights?" bicycle safety and education campaign.
