The Biketober Passport is for every cyclist.

What is the Biketober Passport?

The Biketober Passport is a self-guided cycling event that you can do anytime during October 2018.

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?

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

  • Collect a stamp at each Destination.

  • Post photos on Facebook or Instagram with #biketoberchchpassport and #nzbikeexpo.

  • Bring your stamped Passport to the Biketober final event (Saturday 27 October) for the chance to win fabulous prizes, including an amazing KUDU e-bike from Wattwheels!
