October 1 – 31, 2021


If “magic hour” was a month, it’d be October. That’s why we’re bringing you Spoketober—our very own celebration of the freedom, fun, and exhilaration of cycling—in the heart of autumn. We’re challenging you to take daily rides through the 31 days of October. The more you pedal, the closer you get to winning awesome prizes and earning exclusive fundraising rewards. The best part: your October cycling journey powers free, accessible public bike education programming.

Anywhere you ride, however you move. Go the extra mile to keep free bike education alive.


Information about the 2021 Spoketober Challenge TBA!

In 2020, Bike New York launched the virtual Spoketober Challenge to connect our vibrant community of cyclists. It’s a month-long celebration made to keep you in touch with your bike, your fellow riders, and the singular joy of seeing life from behind the handlebars. This October, join us in taking a ride every day in the name of wellness, camaraderie, and good old-fashioned fun.


As your autumn cycling adventure rolls on, you’ll have the chance to compete for phenomenal prizes and earn exclusive bike gear. We hope that spending time in the saddle each day will keep you feeling good; just by registering, you’re doing good through your support of our critical bike education services.


When the road gets rough, we ride together. This October, take on our Spoketober Challenge and see what amazing things you can accomplish.

Move over, pumpkin spice–we’ve got a better treat for you this fall.
