2019 Strava Art Contest

The Strava Art competition has finished but you can see the entries below.

Unleash your creative side – whilst staying on your bike – with the 2nd annual Biketober Strava Art Contest. Prizes will be presented at the Passport Prize-Giving on 26 October.

What is Strava Art?  It’s the artwork you create when cycling around town with your GPS on.

Check out some examples.  And here are some tips.

This competition is for the best piece of Strava Art in Canterbury during Biketober.

What picture can you ‘draw’ with your bike?  Give it a go!

Create your artwork during October (you have until 6pm, 25 October) and then email it as a JPG attachment to hello@biketoberchch.nz with the subject line Strava Art and include your name, contact details and a link to the Strava file.  We will then post it on the Biketober website.

Artwork will be judged on:

  • creativity and originality of the Strava-produced image
  • whether the design supports the Biketober theme of ‘all riders, on all bikes’
  • overall artistic impression
  • whether the rules have been followed

The judge for the competition will be local artist Nina Cook.

The top prize is a voucher from Flow Hot Yoga for unlimited yoga for one month plus there are two bike art t-shirts for commended entries.


Competition rules:

  • The track must be created by you, pedalling on a bicycle or e-bike, between 1 October and 25 October (6pm) 2019.
  • The track must be within Canterbury.
  • The ride must be recorded by the Strava app (or an app with equivalent functionality) and the GPX files made available if requested.
  • By submitting an entry, you agree that your artwork may be posted to Biketober social media channels, or used (with credit given) for promotional purposes.
  • The judging decision is final – no correspondence will be entered into.

Hop on your bike.  Activate Strava.  Draw!
