FABB and WABA join forces

Today Shane Farthing, Executive Director of the Washington Area Bicyclist Association, announced that "WABA and FABB have joined forces to strengthen the voice of cycling in Fairfax!" While FABB has been affiliated with WABA for many years, we are now formal partners. With the approval of the WABA board and signing of a Memorandum of Understanding, FABB is now a sponsored project of WABA.

What does this mean? We will now be able to work more closely with WABA to advance bike advocacy in Fairfax County, including being able to raise funds. We are a volunteer organization and have struggled at times to find funding for the hosting of our website, paying for insurance for group rides, printing promotional materials, purchasing needed equipment, and paying for other miscellaneous expenses. Now supporters of FABB can donate to WABA/FABB to help cover some of the cost of these expenses.

We're excited about this new partnership and look forward to working closely with WABA to expand bicycle advocacy in Fairfax.
