Join the Aotearoa Bike Challenge!
A fun, free challenge to encourage you and your colleagues to experience first hand joys and benefits of riding a bike. There will be lots of fantastic prizes on offer to tempt your team, which we'll announce as the Challenge approaches.
How it works
It’s all about participation – which workplaces can get the most people to ride a bike for just 10 minutes or more? Organisations across the country will compete against each other to see who can get the most staff to ride a bike during the Challenge (1-28 Feb).
It’s not about who can ride the most kilometres, but who can encourage the most people to give bicycling a try. The teams which get the highest percentage of their staff riding for their size category will win.
We will also do a prize draw for each trip you ride. So the more you ride in February, the more chance you have of winning a prize. You can earn more chances at individual prizes for encouraging others to ride.
Why Take part?
You and your colleagues can win some great prizes!

How to take part
Follow these four steps:
- Register on this website, it's free. Register here
- Ride a bike anywhere, anytime for at least 10 minutes during the Challenge (1-28 February 2017)
- Record your ride on this site and tell your friends and coworkers about the Challenge.

Organisations and departments will compete against those of a similar size for a fair chance of winning. There are six size categories: 2000+ staff, 500-1,999 staff, 200-499 staff, 50-199 staff, 20-49 staff, 7-19 staff, and 3-6 staff.
Your participation will count towards your department's and your organisation's score - the % of your total staff that participate in the challenge (say, 100 out of your 250 total employees, or 40% of your staff) is how you'll compete with other companies and departments.
