Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer was set to pedal into work on Friday, March 22, 2024, as part of the city’s annual tradition of hosting Bike to Work Day events, but due to forecast rain the event was rescheduled to this Friday, April 5, 2024.


For Bike to Work Day 2024, riders will meet at 7 am at the SoDo Shopping Plaza, 32 West Crystal Lake Street, then head out at 8 am on a police-escorted group ride through the streets of downtown Orlando to City Hall.  


A Bike to Work Day celebration will be set up at City Hall Plaza beginning at 8 am for downtown workers to learn more about the city’s bike projects and connect to local organizations, like Bike Walk Central Florida and the Orlando Bike Coalition.  


Free, all-day parking is available at the SoDo Shopping Center Parking Garage connected to Target.  


A limited number of Bird and Lime e-bikes will be available for those who want to participate in the group bike ride but do not own a bike.



Skip traffic! Take LYNX or Sunrail to Bike to Work Day!


LYNX is bike-friendly, allowing you to secure your bicycle on the rack in front of the bus as you relax during your ride to your destination. Use LYNX bus links 07, 11, or 40. These routes will take you to the Sodo Shopping Center.

  

Making your way to Bike to Work Day is seamless from any Sunrail station, with bicycles welcomed aboard all trains. Disembark at the Orlando Health/Amtrak station and from there it's just a quick 1-mile cycle to the SoDo Shopping Center.


To sync perfectly with the event's 8 am start, catch the northbound train stopping at the Orlando Health/Amtrak station at 6:50 am, 7:20 am, or 7:50 am, or the southbound train at 6:54 am, 7:24 am, or 7:54 am.
