Ride Bikes, Help WABA

CLIF Bar’s 2-mile challenge is about as simple a concept as it comes: if the errand is within 2 miles, replace a car with a bike. Sure, it’s tough to hear when it’s going to be torrid outside, but WABA is hoping that you’ll take a ride (which makes its own breeze!) through the city to help them raise money.  The bike advocacy non-profit gets a buck per ride during the month of July, to a maximum of $10,000, which they can use to help get  bike routes marked and lanes painted throughout the metropolitan area.

If you’re the biking sort, it doesn’t take much to get signed up and charting your rides with them!  Remember your lights & helmet, though, and practice good situational awareness.

As someone who’s now lost close to 60lbs by taking a bike a few times a week, the little miles add up to a whole lot of progress. Get out there and bike, DC!

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
