To participate all you need to do is ride anywhere, anytime during February for at least 10 minutes, then log your trip on the website. Businesses compete against other businesses to see who can get the most people riding. There are 6 business size categories to create a level playing field for the competition.

There are lots of prizes to be won including bike gear, restaurant vouchers and electric bikes! Be one of the first 300 businesses to register and receive a goody pack.

Electric Bikes

Cycling is a great fleet option for your business. Auckland Transport gives you the opportunity to trial the world’s lightest electric bikes. Electric bikes, or e-bikes, are bicycles with a small electric motor to assist the rider's pedal-power and they are increasing in popularity and number.

E-bikes have many advantages:

  •     Allow every employee to conquer the hills of Auckland without breaking a sweat.
  •     Rechargeable batteries that provide a low cost alternative to fleet vehicles and taxis
  •     Reduced fleet car parking requirements.
  •     They are clean and green.


We can arrange a free introductory workshop for your staff and discounted hire for a trial period.
