Tomorrow, trade in your four wheels for two during Orlando’s 18th Annual Bike to Work Day.

Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer will host a celebration of the event with a community bike ride through downtown Orlando on Friday, Nov. 3.

The ride will start at 8 a.m. at Orlando Festival Park, located at 2911 E. Robinson St. The trip ends at City Hall, at 400 S. Orange Ave.

Check-in begins at 7 a.m. and will include free coffee, bike tune-ups and raffle prizes provided by our sponsors.

To participate in the event, you can register here in advance as a single rider, join a team or create a new team. You can also sign up at the starting location on the day of the event.

Medals for the largest teams will be awarded by Mayor Dyer following the ride.

You'll want to be careful out on your bike, since Orlando was the only U.S. city to make a list of the 10 worst cities for cycling earlier this year, according to We Love Cycling.

The site also ranked Florida as the worst state for cyclists.
