This Friday, set your alarms a little earlier and leave your car keys at home: it's Bike to Work Day.

Bike to Work Day 2013

Bike to Work Day is an annual event that encourages people to switch up their daily routine and try bicycle commuting.

Cyclists of all experience levels are welcome, and participation is easy: all you have to do is ride you bike to work on Friday, May 17. If you register ahead of time, you'll get gift bag full of treats from local bike shops.

Before you ride, check out Fix Memphis' bike lane map so that you can plan your route (and remember that a ton of MATA buses have bike racks on them). Make sure your bike is tuned up, your tires are inflated and that you wear your helmet and pack some clothes to change into when you get to the office.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.

    This sounds like a great way to help the planet and get in shape at the same time.

    I love this. It goes along with the green line which has been very successful.

    I hope many people take advantage of this activity.
