Lace up your sneakers and get peddling — or at least do your best to avoid downtown or the causeways to the Beach — because tonight Miami's cyclists will embark on their monthly 19-mile trek through town. If you're trying to avoid traffic to make a quick escape the last Friday of the month, pay close attention to the route.

The ride, beginning at 7 p.m., will start at Government Center and travel through a slew of neighborhoods, including Overtown, Wynwood, Little Haiti, the Upper Eastside, and North Bay Village.

Here's a full map of the route:

After the ride, cyclists will meet up for food, drinks, and music at the Magic City Bike Party in Omni Park.

Organizers, as always, remind the crowd to yield to emergency vehicles, refrain from using headphones, and stay in the right lane to avoid accidents.

Traffic is set to slow during the ride, so if you're not looking to delay your Friday-night plans in bumper-to-bumper, you've been warned.
