What is the Biketober Passport?

The Biketober Passport is a self-guided cycling event that you can do anytime during October - actually, even the weekend of 29-30 September is included.

The Passport is a map of Christchurch, and it shows bike-friendly ways to travel across the city, such as the new Major Cycleways and other cycle lanes.

40 Passport Destinations are marked on the map – some are offering discounts or special deals to cyclists during October. How many Destinations can you get to on your bike during Biketober?

  • Visit as many Passport Destinations as you can, from 29 September to 27 October.
