National Bike Month has been a blast. Aside from down right chilly weather and some rain showers, we’ve had a great time getting back on our bikes after the winter and getting to know some of the great biking organizations in DC, Maryland, and Pennsylvania.
One of our favorites — and newly wind powered — is the Washington Area Bicyclist Association (WABA). As the DC region’s non-profit biking association, WABA promotes bicycling as a fun, affordable mode of transportation that builds community, keeps you healthy, and keeps environment healthy too.
WABA advocates for better bicycling conditions and transportation choices. They also educate the community about safe bicycling through classes and events. They do all of this with the vision of fully-integrated transportation system in the DC region that links transit, trails, bicycling, and walking.
WABA was also an organizer of Bike to Work Day — getting over 14,000 in the DC metro area out on their bikes this past Friday. We had a great time staffing rest areas with the DC Velo team and have some great pictures to prove it. Check out WABA’s infographic on how the DC area participated in Bike to Work Day.
Now, by becoming 100% wind-powered by Clean Currents, WABA is taking another step towards a healthier future. They’re also helping Clean Currents customers get healthy. Now, all Clean Currents customers receive a discount to a WABA membership. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get access to your WABA discount.
When you consider the many ways WABA is promoting the health of ourselves, our community, and our environment, it is easy to see that WABA is not just a bicyclist association, but rather a trailblazer for a better future. Whether they ride for the environment or simply for fun, all WABA members (many of whom are Clean Currents employees and customers!) are making a difference for the better and having fun doing it.
