As the leaves begin to change and the crisp autumn air settles in, there’s no better time to prioritize your health and well-being than with the arrival of Biketober.

This annual cycling challenge is once again gearing up to transform Atlantic Station into a hub of community engagement, physical activity, and environmental consciousness. This year marks the 11th year of Biketober in Atlanta.

For those unaware, Biketober is an exciting month-long initiative that encourages Metro Atlantans to swap their cars for bikes and embark on an active and eco-friendly commuting adventure. By biking to work, school and daily activities, participants have the opportunity to not only reduce stress and improve their overall well-being but also make a positive impact towards creating a greener and more sustainable environment.

Beginning on October 1st and closing out on October 31st, thousands of residents from the metro Atlanta area will unite to pedal their way through life’s challenges. Previous events have seen 3,000+ Metro Atlantans and 300+ companies from the 20-county region participate, and this year promises an even greater turnout. The community spirit intertwined with friendly competition truly makes Biketober an empowering initiative for everyone- you, your friends, family and co-workers!

Participating in Biketober not only benefits your physical and mental health but also gives you an opportunity to win some exciting prizes. By embracing active commuting, you can earn points and climb the leaderboards, with chances to win weekly giveaways. Early-bird registrants (those who register before October 1st) will be entered into a drawing for a $1,000 Airbnb gift card. And the grand prize? The cutting-edge Edison E-bike! The thrill of Biketober lies not just in the ride itself, but also in the anticipation and possibilities of what you could win.

The vibrancy and energy of Atlantic Station make it the perfect community to fully embrace Biketober. As you weave through this urban oasis of shops, parks, and vibrant streets, imagine the positive impact each pedal stroke has on your physical and mental well-being. Whether you’re a dedicated cyclist or a casual rider, this is your opportunity to be an active part of something bigger.
