Kilometrikisa cycling challenge for students and staff 2018

Join the Kilometrikisa (kilometre challenge) between May 1 and September 22!

​Join the Kilometrikisa (kilometre challenge) between May 1 and September 22! Kilometrikisa is a nationwide playful cycle challenge between teams. The aim is to inspire and encourage people to cycle more. In addition to this, the Green Office team of the University of Oulu wants to reward the team that has gathered most kilometers (proportional to the number of team members) and thus made the biggest environmental act. The distribution of prizes takes place during the well-being week (week 41). You can also participate in the Instagram contest by sharing pictures from your cycling trips with hashtag #UniOuluBikes. Rules of the Instagram competition can be found as an attachment.

You can participate in the challenge with any kind of work/study team, for example with a research group or a students' guild. Challenge your co-workers/study mates into the competition! New members can participate in the team throughout the challenge.
