What is the Aotearoa Bike Challenge?

The Aotearoa Bike Challenge is a fun, free competition to encourage your colleagues to experience first hand joys and benefits of riding a bike. There are 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 who can get the most staff riding and encouraging others to ride to get valuable points 1-28 February.

Every point matters and everyone can contribute to their company's total points! You can earn more chances at individual prizes for encouraging others to ride, and the team contest is all about getting as many of your colleagues to ride a bike as you can!
