WABA's BikeFest on Friday June 13

BikeFest is WABA's annual fundraiser and celebration of bicycling. The big event is Friday, June 13 at Eastern Market in DC. From WABA's BikeFest page:

DATE: Friday, June 13, 2014
TIME: 8 p.m. to Midnight
LOCATION: Eastern Market North Hall
TICKETS: $45 for WABA members; $55 for the public.

Can you imagine what it would be like without the Capital Crescent Trail, Beach Drive closed to cars on weekends or bike access on Metrorail and bus? Can you imagine how the region might have developed without an organization dedicated to making sure that bicycling is part of the transportation solution?

Join us for
  • A one night Biketopia exhibit of bicycling undone: an artistic showcase of beautiful and idealistic bicycle infrastructure and design
  • Silent auction featuring desirable packages & experiences
  • A live band & dancing, with local jazz music by The Greater U St Jazz Collective
  • Libations (ticket price includes 2 drink tickets)
  • Food (a fancy buffet, courtesy of our sponsor Chipotle) & desserts
BikeFest is our annual fundraiser and celebration of bicycling. It’s our chance to celebrate advocacywins of the past year, such as the much-needed repaving of the 15th St Cycletrack in DC, Alexandria’s decision to move forward with bike lanes on King Street, and the passage of the DC Bicycle Safety Amendment Act. And this year, BikeFest’s Biketopia theme will examine futuristic designs and encourage you to imagine what facilities could possibly exist in an ideal bike world.

BikeFest is WABA’s opportunity to raise the funds needed to continue our advocacy, outreach and education efforts. Join us at BikeFest 2014 and you can help fund the expansion of trail networks, bike lanes, bikesharing and safer streets. Buy tickets here.
