Spotted: Bike Ambassadors!
Have you recently spotted a bicycle enthusiast in a red DC Bike Ambassador T-shirt on your commute to or from work? That’s because the Bike Ambassadors have kicked off a series of outreach events at some of the prime bicycling locations around town. We started last week at two locations, 16th & U St NW and 14th St & Clifton St NW, and were out on the Metropolitan Branch Trail yesterday morning. We have a few more locations picked out, but we would love to hear your suggestions for additional sites. Upcoming Outreach Locations (Dates TBD): – Rock Creek Park/Trail & Virginia Ave NW – Capitol Hill – 14th St and Park Rd NW – You tell us!
The goal of our pop-up outreach is to become mobile information booths about all things bicycling. Stop by one of our upcoming outreach locations and grab a snack, a bike map, chat about WABA, bikes, and/or the Bike Ambassador Program. We can help you find a safe route to get you where you need to go or answer other biking-related questions you might have. We will announce where the Bike Ambassadors will be via the WABA Facebook page as the dates are scheduled, so be sure to “Like” us to find out and stay informed! In the meantime, e-mail your questions or suggestions to Megan or Katie at BikeAmbassador@test.waba.org. Thought about joining WABA but haven’t yet? Need to renew your membership? Stop by one of our outreach locations, learn more about the benefits of WABA membership, and join at the discounted rate of $30. Hope to see you soon!
