What is the Biketober Business Challenge?

The Biketober Business Challenge is a fun, free cycling campaign to encourage your colleagues to experience first-hand the joys and benefits of riding a bike.  Simply ride a bike for as little as 10 minutes during October. There will be lots of prizes on offer to tempt everyone to get involved.

Get Healthy at Work has joined with Love to Ride to create the Biketober Business Challenge.  It's completely free to join and is open to everyone who lives or works in NSW. 

When:  1 - 31 October 


How it works

The Biketober Business Challenge is all about encouraging people to ride a bike. 

Workplaces will compete against each other to see who can get their staff to ride a bike, and continue riding.

It’s not just about who can cycle the furthest or the most often, but who can encourage the most people to give cycling a go.

Individuals are also welcome to take part and are eligible to win spot prizes as long as they live or work in NSW.


Points

Earn points for you and your workplace every time you ride or sign someone up to be part of the Biketober Business Challenge:
