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 pedalling instead of driving and to promote bicycling as a sustainable transportation mode in Armidale. While we encourage you to rack up the kilometres 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

Data must be submitted within 2 days of the end of the competition.

How do I know how many kilometers I’ve ridden each day? 

Google Maps can measure bike distances or use a smart phone GPS app
