Hosted by ACU Sport in conjunction with The Track, aims to motivate ACU students and staff to:

  •  provide friendly competition

The Biketober Challenge will provide participants with cycling information and weekly challenges and prizes to encourage your cycling development.

Each weekly challenge will be hosted by an industry professional, elite athlete, or experienced motivational leader within the cycling community.
