Thank you for your interest in the Washington Area Bicyclist Association.
Currently, you are a not registered member of WABA
Before we get to upcoming events, WABA needs your help more this year than ever before. With the tight economy squeezing both our members and our grantors, we are faced with significant budget cuts that will require us to cut programming unless we find additional support. Please become a WABA member for only $35 for the year and help make 2011 the year of the bicycle!

So You Want to be a DC Bike Ambassador?
Saturday, October 23, 2010
We're recruiting enthusiastic and outgoing volunteer Bike Ambassadors (BAs) to represent WABA and put a smiling face on bicycling. And the next DC Bike Ambassador volunteer orientation is just around the corner.
The orientation meeting is a chance for Daniel, our Bike Ambassador, to meet volunteers face-to-face and lay out the BA program. Please plan to spend about an hour, and we will provide food. If this sounds good to you, please email Daniel at firstname.lastname@example.org
