Pump up your tires and roll those khaki slacks, because Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer is joining residents around the community to kick off Bike to Work Day Friday, March 31.
The biking event will go down in celebration of Florida Biking Month, an effort to increase support for outdoor exercise and fitness.
Starting at 8 a.m. sharp, at Lake Lorna Doone Park, Mayor Dyer will kick off a group ride leading residents through downtown Orlando and ending up in City Hall. BYOB (Bring Your Own Bike) is encouraged, but a limited number of e-bikes and pedicabs will be available for those who do not own bikes. On-site registration happens at 7 a.m.
At the end of the journey, riders can enjoy a post-ride celebration with awards and giveaways. Attendees will also be able to learn more about upcoming Orlando biking projects.
To learn more or register to bike, you can visit the City of Orlando website.
