Friday is "Ditch the Keys and Ride your Bike to Work Day" in Central Arkansas, according to Metroplan’s public awareness program, Ozone Action Days.

Conway’s Advocates for Bicycling and The Ride will host an event Friday between 5 and 7 p.m. at Zaza’s Pizza in the Village at Hendrix, where the winner of the "Conway Bike to Work Commuter Cup Challenge" will be named.

A trophy will be given to the person who has commuted the most miles to work this week.

In conjunction with the day, CAB will sponsor "National Bike to Work Day with Mayor Tab Townsell." 

Riders from four starting points in Conway will ride their bikes to Simon Park and converge at 8 a.m. for coffee and rolls.

The public is invited to attend both events.
