The Biketober Business Challenge is here!

Everyone in NSW is invited to join the Biketober Business Challenge, a fun campaign to get more people on bikes and spread the joys of biking.

There’s never been a better time to enjoy riding a bike! It’s a good way to ensure you are getting enough daily exercise as well as an easy and safe way to travel from A to B while avoiding crowds.

Riding a bike can help:

• Prevent the decline of your immune system in the short and long-term. The rise in body temperature when riding a bike helps our bodies fight infection better.

• Boost your mental health, helping to make you feel happier and more connected to your surroundings and less prone to depression than other forms of transport.

• Reduce stress and anxiety – any form of physical activity is good for reducing stress. Biking can help take your mind off problems, or give you a chance to think about things calmly.

For the Biketober Business Challenge it doesn’t matter if you ride every day or if you haven’t been on a bike in years. You only have to ride for ten minutes to take part. Plus there are great prizes to win too!
