Get a team! for the Armidale 2016 Commute Challenge! 

Saturday, 17 Sep
7:00 am

This competition is a way to have fun while challenging your friends, co-workers, and yourself to offset vehicle transport by riding as much as you can during NSW Bike Week and hopefully many more throughout the year!  

Commute Challenge Details

Competition Start/End:

The Bicycle Commute Challenge starts Saturday September 17th! Log and tally any commutes/trips you take on your bike everyday to the end date Friday September 23rd inclusive.

To Register or Log-in:

  • Register yourself or your team by clicking the register button at

  • If you cannot remember your password, enter something and if it is wrong you can reset it.
  • To register a new account enter your name, email and create a password (this will be used to log in during bike week and record your commutes)

  • Other team members can then select that team from a pull-down menu when they register or log-in.
  • Teams must be comprised of 3-8 riders.

What can I count as a commute/trip?

Any bicycle ride you take between the competition start and end dates that takes you from point A to point B for a specific purpose. For instance, commutes from home to work, to do the shopping, to visit a friend or run an errand, or any other non-recreational ride that may have otherwise been done in a vehicle.

How is the competition scored?

The purpose of this competition is to get people pedaling instead of driving and to promote bicycling as a sustainable transportation mode in Armidale. While we encourage you to rack up the kilometers by biking as many places as you can during Bike Week, points will also be awarded for number of trips taken by bike! 

How do I submit my commute/trips?

You may enter your kilometres and trips online at
