Oct. 1 through Okct. 31 is Biketober, Atlanta’s Fifth Annual Bike Challenge.

This is a free commute competition for people with all levels of biking experience. Those who live in any of the 19 counties of metro Atlanta are eligible to compete.

According to a recent announcement, this is how the Biketober competition works:

“Bike riders across metro Atlanta are invited to create teams of up to eight people and earn points in a race to win fantastic prizes, including a trip to Italy! Teams earn points for every mile logged, every day ridden, and for every person the team encouraged to sign up.”

Each team member will record their miles on ATLBikeChallenge.com. If you ride a minimum of 10 minutes per day, teams are entered in a chance to win weekly prizes.

To add more incentive, there will be other prizes in the pool, such as:

– A pair of round-trip Southwest Airline tickets
– Tickets to an Atlanta Hawks game
– One free week of Good Measure Meals, including free nutrition/dietician counseling
– A new bike
– Trip to Italy or San Francisco (Participants are automatically entered into a nationwide
program drawing for trip of their choice)

“Our goal is get more metro Atlanta commuters to incorporate cycling into their routines,”said Rosalind Tucker, Atlanta Bike Challenge Lead at the Atlanta Regional Commission. “Since 2014, nearly 5,500 riders have participated in the Atlanta Bike Challenge, logging over one million miles in rides.”
