WABA Bike to Work Day - 2014

  • May 16, 2014 · 7:00 AM

WABA Bike to Work Day
Friday, May 16, 2014

This is NOT a MEETUP but more a public service announcement

Official Website :
http://www.biketoworkmetrodc.org/


The Ride

Come join us as we support (and enjoy) the Washington Area Bicyclist Association's (WABA) Bike to Work Day 2014. Please pre-register on the WABA website (link above).  Choose one of the over 50 pit stops where you can pick up your free t-shirt, food, and other swag (what's available varies by pit stop).

This is just created as a MEETUP so our members can be reminded when the WABA Bike to Work Day is and have a convenient place to find the associated links.

It would be AWESOME if you posted a comment or a photo after the fact of your experience riding your bike to work today.


The Meeting Spot

There isn't one, so enjoy your bike ride to work today .... and let us know how it felt !!!


The Fine Print

As always helmets are required and be safe out there.

    If you stop at the Ballston/FB pit stop before 8am, stop and say hi, I'll be a volunteer there. Hope you all stay dry!

      Okey dokey. I can meet you in Shirlington and we can roll out to Penrose Square from there, then do the rest of the circuit, ending in Crystal City. I'll then roll across and go to work.

    I'm thinking of stopping at Penrose Square (Columbia Pike & Barton St), FreshBikes (Ballston), Rosslyn, and Crystal City on the way in to DC, and then East Falls Church (Tri360 @ the W&OD/Custis neighborhood split) in the afternoon if anyone wants to join me for any or all of those stops. I'm gonna skip Freedom Plaza because it's just too big and crazy.
