Creating a more bike friendly world

Our annual Biketober campaign is kicking off and this year it’s going to be bigger and better.  Now is the time to join in and get more people riding in your LGA.

2-Jul-21-2023-02-56-31-4632-PMBiketober is a fun, easy to run, and proven bicycling encouragement program that local governments are bringing to their area to increase ridership and enhance their existing programs.

The month-long program is all about encouraging as many people in your area to start riding, ride more often and ride for transportation.


3 reasons to get your area involved:

1. Proven to increase ridership and achieve long lasting behaviour change results
2. Gather useful data including behavioural and transport data, trip data, and a database of riders to promote your other biking and transport initiatives to
3. Easy to run with a project management team, complete marketing and promotion package, community and employer engagement

We are also acutely aware of how busy people in the transport sector tend to be! That’s why we provide all the materials and tools you need to make Biketober a success in your area:
