Most people will probably drive to work Friday morning, but hundreds of people will pedal in for the morning commute.

It's Bike to Work Day 2016!

Different waves of bike riders are taking off from different locations around the city Friday morning.

Chelsea Winters and her husband Mark started their journey at the Jordan YMCA.

"I think it's a great day to really encourage folks to get out and use active transportation," Chelsea said. "Sometimes folks are a little leery of riding their bike to work for the first time, so it hopefully gives folks those trains around the city and a group that supports them and encourages them to make a more active transportation choice."

She said she encouraged her husband to participate. The duo was set to travel about eight miles, ending downtown.

Everyone participating in Bike to Work Day will converge at City Market.
