What is the Biketober Business Challenge?

Get Healthy at Work has partnered with Love to Ride to create the Biketober Business Challenge. It is a fun, free cycling challenge to encourage your workplace and colleagues to experience the joys and benefits of riding a bike, open to everyone who lives or works in NSW.  Simply ride a bike for as little as 10 minutes during October. There are lots of prizes on offer to tempt everyone to get involved.

When:  1 - 31 October


How it works

Workplaces compete against each other to see get the most amount of staff cycling and continuing to cycle. 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 welcome to take part and are eligible to win spot prizes as long as they live or work in NSW.
