It’s the 10th anniversary of Biketober in Atlanta and this year’s challenge is going to be bigger than ever. Join us to get even more people across the metro Atlanta region riding bikes this October!

What is the Biketober Challenge?

Biketober is a fun and free competition to encourage you, your friends, family and colleagues to experience firsthand the joys and benefits of riding a bike. There are lots of fantastic prizes up for grabs to reward and motivate you to ride as well as prizes for encouraging others to do the same.

You can ride anywhere, anytime in October - just a 10-minute ride is enough to take part.

  1. Register - Login (if you've taken part before) or sign up here
  2. Enjoy a bike ride/s
  3. Log it here or connect a cycling app (Love to Ride, Strava or Map My Ride)
  4. Earn points, climb the leaderboards and win prizes!

Points for riding: 1 mile = 1 point, 1 day = 10 points. Points for encouraging: 1 existing rider = 50 points, 1 new rider = 100 points

How do I earn points?

Earn points as an individual by:

Your Workplace and Team points will be the sum of all points earned by every person taking part in your company or team on Love to Ride.

The points system has been designed to ensure a fair and exciting competition, and to strongly encourage individuals to encourage new people to get on a bike if they want to climb the leaderboard and secure victory.

Take part with a workplace 

Join or register a workplace. 

Invite your coworkers to take part and compete against other workplaces on a metro Atlanta-wide workplace leaderboard. 

Offices will compete against those of a similar size for a fair chance of winning. There are seven size categories: 2000+ staff, 500-1999 staff, 200-499 staff, 50-199 staff, 20-49 staff, 7-19 staff and 1-6 staff.

Workplaces will compete to earn the most points in October by riding and encouraging others to do the same.

The workplaces with the most total points at the end of October will win their size category.

Take part in a social team 

You can choose to take part with a workplace AND a social team, or just one or the other.

You can ride in a social team of up to 10 people including friends, family or coworkers. 

Social teams will compete across 3 different leaderboards so you are able to focus on what inspires you most to take part in the challenge. You will be able to toggle the leaderboards between:

  • total points
  • riding points (total of day and miles points)
  • encourager points  

Team leaderboards can be filtered by region (e.g. Midtown) and by team type (e.g. cycling group, group of friends etc.)

Take part as an individual 

Ride solo, earn points, compete on individual leaderboards and win prizes.
