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!

The Biketober Business Challenge is an initiative from Get Healthy at Work, a NSW Government program that aims to create healthy workplaces and improve the health of working adults in NSW.
