Hundreds of helmeted commuters will tour downtown Raleigh on two wheels Friday morning, mingling with rush-hour automobile traffic in a group ride marking National Bike to Work Week.

Cyclists will gather on the north side of the Bicentennial Mall, in front of the Jones Street entrance to the Legislative Building. The event starts at 8:30 a.m. with a walk south through the mall and a ride looping around 18 blocks bounded by Edenton, Salisbury, Morgan, Fayetteville, Hargett, West and Jones streets.

Breakfast refreshments will be served at the end of the 45-minute ride. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, check the Bike to Work Week website or call 516-2158.
