There is a 72-hour grace period after the challenge to log any final rides from October, so be sure to log all your rides by 3 November at 11:59 p.m.


How to win prizes

Earn points every time you log a ride or encourage someone else to join*. Even a quick ride around the park or to the store will earn you points. 

The more points you earn, the greater your chances of winning a prize. Who knows? That one ride could win you $4,000 or one of our other incredible prizes.

How to compete with a workplace

Biketober is also a workplace challenge! This means that you and your co-workers can ride together to compete against other workplaces of a similar size in your area or across the country.

Your points earned by riding and encouraging others will contribute to your workplace’s total. The workplaces with the most points will come out on top!

No Workplace? No Problem!

You can still take part in Biketober if you don’t work or are retired and will be eligible for the prizes. Or if you’re studying, simply join or register your university or school profile to compete on the workplace leaderboards.
