How can I take part?

You can take part in three ways:

  • As an individual¬†- you'll enter the drawings for Biketober prizes and compete with others on the individual leaderboards
  • With a workplace¬†- your office will compete on the workplace¬†leaderboards¬†to earn the most points. You'll enter the drawings for individual prizes and help your workplace win too.
  • With a club/group¬†- clubs aren't eligible for any workplace¬†prizes¬†but are a great way to keep¬†track of how much riding you and your friends can do as part of Biketober

If you're competing as part of a workplace, your workplace points will be the sum of all points earned by every employee taking part at your company on Love to Ride.

You don't have to be a bike commuter to take part - all types of rides count towards your team's score!
