Thank You for Joining Us!
Our yearly membership drive ended last Friday, and we’re pleased to announce that over 550 people joined us—some for the first time, some for the first time in a long time, and some for yet another few years. Membership dollars help us expand our advocacy, outreach, and education work, and we enthusiastically welcome and greatly appreciate financial support of what WABA does. If you joined or renewed during the drive, thank you! We’d also like to thank to local businesses City Bikes and Lunar Massage for graciously donating materials to the drive. And a number of WABA supporters volunteered to help us solicit memberships throughout D.C., Maryland, and Virginia last week—we couldn’t have pulled off the membership drive without them! You can engage with us in a number of ways in addition to being a WABA member: You can become a D.C. bike ambassador; get involved with our advocacy efforts; take a class (the last oneof the season is this Sunday!); join the Women & Bicycles group if you’re women-identified; follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Flickr (and contribute to our Flickr pool!); read our blog; ride your bike; and encourage your friends to join us, too. If you didn’t join during the drive, that’s OK! You can join or donate to WABA at any time. Plus, WABA members get great perks. We look forward to working with all our new members to better bicycling in the D.C. region.
