Friday is Bike to Work Day in Indianapolis and Mayor Ballard wants all of us to take part.

The focus of this year’s event is encouraging novice riders to give it a try.

An estimated 1,500 cyclists will be riding to the celebration at the Indy Bike Hub at the City Market just before 8 a.m. Mayor Ballard will be among them.

Hundreds of other cyclists around the city who can’t make the morning presentation will still be riding to work so be on the lookout.
