Planning Your Own Biketober Event

As a festival of all things cycling, Biketober Christchurch invites your event or activity – so long as it’s related to riding a bike – to be included in the 2019 programme.

Half the Biketober Christchurch events that were held in 2017-18 were staged by the volunteer Biketober team and their friends. The other half were brought to the festival by cycling and community groups, Christchurch City Council, and other forward-thinking organisations.

With several dozen events of experience, the volunteer Biketober team is happy to advise on what could be a successful way for you to be involved with Biketober this year so please do not hesitate to get in touch and share your ideas with us!

To get listed on the Biketober calendar of events, 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
