How to win prizes

If the freedom of two wheels isn’t enough to get you on your bike, then check out our great prizes on offer. Aucklanders are eligible for both national and Auckland region prizes. Along with random spot prizes, each person you encourage, kilometer you ride and day you record a ride gives you points. 1 point = 1 entry into a prize draw. The people and organisations with the most points at the end of the challenge are crowned the winner. Any ride over 10 minutes counts, but be warned, rides logged indoors (eg: cycling machine or zwift) do not count.

Find amazing prizes on offer for 2021.

While we have no official partner for 2021, you’re encouraged to make your kilometres count by considering a donation to a charity of your choice.
