Biketober 2023 is Here!

Biketober is here!

It’s the last day of September, which means that tomorrow is… Biketober! Yep, Christchurch’s annual festival of all things biking continues in its 7th year, with another bumper list of activities.

Here’s some of what you can expect; for more details, check out the Biketober events calendar:

  • The famous Biketober Passport is back, with great prizes for hopping on your bike and visiting many supporting venues during the month. There’s even a child-friendly Whanau Passport option to visit locations along the safe cycling routes. Collect as many Passport codes during the month and then come along to the prize-giving on Oct 31st to be in to win some amazing prizes!
