You may also want to consider setting up a FB event for your activity and invite Biketober to co-host. We’ll check that it meets the criteria and you’ll be on your way.

To get an event listed on the Biketober calendar, you simply need to confirm that:

  • Your event principally involves riding a bike or is relevant to those who ride, and their trusty transport devices.  It could be a themed ride, a race, a seminar or a how-to workshop – anything about cycling and the culture of riding a bike.
  • Your group will take responsibility for the necessary Health and Safety requirements, ensuring a safe and enjoyable event for all.

Additionally, your event can be given special “Biketober billing” should it be:

  • Open and accessible to all – free, kohā, or expense-recovery only
  • Welcoming to people who are starting out on a cycling journey
