Commuters looking for a different way to work are invited to leave their cars at home and cycle to work in Coral Gables.
The city is partnering with Bike 305, a cycling group, to host a bike-to-work day gathering as part of the annual Miami-Dade County event. The Gables event starts 7:30 a.m. Friday morning at the Coral Gables Museum, 285 Aragon Ave.
Riders will receive refreshments and the first 20 participants will receive a free Bike 305 shirt.
City officials hope the event will encourage cycling throughout the city and reduce vehicle traffic.
