Happy #OptOutside, everyone!

We’re stepping away from our computers, skipping the shopping mall, and getting on our bikes today.

We’re celebrating the power of nature, and doing something to leave our communities a little stronger than we found them.

We hope you get to do the same—spend some time outside with the people you love. Go for a bike ride, help out at a neighborhood cleanup, enjoy some breakfast pie on your porch. 

This week is also a time to reflect on everything we’re grateful for:

  • You. You and thousands of other supporters power WABA, and we wouldn’t be a strong, sustainable organization of 20 people without you.
  • Trails that give us reprieve from the concrete jungle, and give us that boost of sunshine and happiness.
  • Protected bike lanes that keep us safe moving through cities and act as superhighways to meet and make friends.
  • Ice cream—did you know that we almost always have ice cream in the freezer at WABA? (We’re on the hunt for a cozier, wintry treat.)

With gratitude,

The WABA Staff: Katie, Anna, Kristin, Sydney, Ursula, Garrett, Colin, Hannah, Carm, Tessla, Raymond, Trey, Hannah, Cyrus, Pedro, Eli, Jeremiah, Jeff, Jonathan, and Greg.
