Gear up for Biketober

Join this month-long celebration of cycling in Christchurch.

Biketober is for anyone interested in cycling. You might be new to cycling, looking for some advice and ways to give it a try. Perhaps you’re a cycle commuter, a family who like to cycle, or a cycle enthusiast. Maybe you’d like to meet others who just enjoy being out and about by bike.

We hope to show you that cycling’s a great way to get from A to B, whatever your bike or your purpose.

Biketober coincides with the return of spring and the recent opening of a number of Christchurch’s Major Cycle Routes.

Events happening during Biketober

Over 50 events and activities are planned in the city, including:

  • social bike rides,
  • go-by-bike breakfasts,
  • a pedal-powered cinema,
  • bike maintenance and repair workshops,
  • a cargo bike rally, and more.

Find out more about Biketober in Christchurch, including a full programme of events.

Many events are organised by the amazing volunteer groups we have in town. Some of these events happen anyway; some of them are Biketober ‘specials’ and others are bigger events that we’re linking up with such as:

  • Avon Otakaro’s Meet in the Middle family event,
  • the BECA Heritage week,
  • the NZ Bike Expo, and
  • the Asia-Pacific Cycle Congress.

There’s a Biketober Passport in the making. You can get your passport stamped at 16 participating venues, then drop it in at the Expo for a chance to win some great prizes.
