The mission of the Washington Area Bicyclist Association 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.

WABA seeks to achieve this through advocacy, outreach, and education initiatives, as well as membership and development growth. Our events and rides provide additional support for our mission. For more information about what we’re working on presently, check out our advocacy priorities.
