Mission

WABA's mission is improving bicycling conditions and promoting bicycling in the metropolitan Washington, DC region. WABA envisions bicycle accommodations on every road, bicycle access across every bridge, bicycle accommodations on all transit, and bicycle parking at every destination. We envision bicycling being not only the healthiest and most environmentally-friendly means of transportation but also the safest and most convenient.

Ward 8 Outreach

WABA is working to expand its offerings in underserved communities within our region–starting with DC’s Ward 8.  With major changes coming to the ward, from the South Capitol Street Trail and bridge to St. Elizabeth’s to Poplar Point and countless smaller projects, the developments that will change the face of southeastern DC are being planned and implemented right now.
DC’s Ward 8 is a critical area for cycling, as there is currently no quality, cyclist-friendly connection from the Wilson Bridge Trail to and from the South Capitol Bridge.  In addition to this significant gap in the regional “bicycle beltway,” many neighborhoods in Ward 8 lack safe bicycling, as many of the major roadways encourage high-speed commuter traffic rather than safer, community-focused design elements that favor cyclists and pedestrians.
There are dedicated cyclists in Ward 8 and WABA is committed to helping them, but we also are committed to enabling more residents to commute by bike.  And we need those new cyclists to become advocates for cycling in their community, so that when these major projects are being discussed, they are present to show local, community-based support for bicycling.
Growing cycling (and cycling advocates) in Ward 8 is the focus of WABA’s ambitious 2011 plan that will require time, dedication, and funding.
Here are the key elements of our plan:
WABA will provide a “Learn to Ride” course in Ward 8, taught on bikes provided by WABA;
WABA will provide a new, fully functional bike suitable for commuting to 10 selected Ward 8 residents;
WABA will provide 20 Capital Bikeshare memberships to Ward 8 residents;
WABA will provide a monthly mobile bike shop throughout the riding season;
WABA will provide mentoring and encouragement with a dedicated WABA staff member, committed to helping keep these residents on bikes;
WABA will provide health benchmarking and comparison of pre- and post- biking season health;
WABA will provide three group rides for residents of Ward 8 and the WABA community, intended to help these new cyclists find their place in a supportive cycling community;
And WABA will supplement this program with additional efforts dedicated to reaching out to and encouraging cycling in Ward 8 with specific tabling events, outreach materials, and activities.
