This year the Big Green Commute has partnered with WABA, the Washington Area Bicyclist Association!

The mission of WABA is to create a healthy, more livable region by promoting bicycling for fun, fitness, and affordable transportation; advocating for better bicycling conditions and transportation choices for a healthier environment, and educating children, adults, and motorists about safe bicycling.

Every year they help organize Bike to Work Day, which is May 17th this year, the final day of our competition!  You can find Bike Maps and Guides, learn more about local Bike Laws, and find the nearest Bike Shop on their website.  They even have a page dedicated to Commuting By Bike with tips on the best routes.

WABA will be sharing a tent with ZGF at the Columbia Heights Civic Plaza on Saturday May 4th, during the farmers market, to promote the Big Green Commute and provide more information about the competition and other services.  More details coming soon…
