Cyclists are encouraged to ride to the 600 block of O Street NW for biking-related goodies and resources from 6:30-8:00 p.m.

WABA Vice President Martin Moulton said the volunteers at the stand will hand out comprehensive maps of places to ride in the city as well as bike safety tips and cards. Riders who arrive early enough can also pick up a free gift.

“Our goal is to engage cyclists in the local community and make sure drivers, cyclists and pedestrians all get along,” Moulton said.

He also said Lieutenant Debra Pearce has been eager to work with groups in the community to promote public safety and add to their existing outreach post.

“It’s a great community engagement tool,” Moulton added. “We’re excited for the chance to talk to people, and we just hope everyone has a good time out there on the road.”

  1. I look forward to attending, so long as the bicyclists stay off the sidewalks and the police can assure there’ll be no drive-by shootings at that dangerous corner
