Capture the Love

Asheville, how about capturing your love for bicycling and entering your shots in the League of American Bicyclists’ photo contest? You have until May 19th to capture images of bicycle culture for a chance to win fame, glory, and free registration at the 2015 National Bike Summit.

From LAB:

For us, there’s nothing more beautiful than the sight of smiling bicyclists commuting on two wheels or pedaling for recreation. And thanks to the tremendous growth of the Bicycle Friendly America program, we’re seeing more communities, businesses and universities adopting that vision.

Submit your photos here!

Help the League continue this progress by showing us the best of bicycling in your city, school or workplace. We want to showcase and celebrate the many different ways our nation is becoming more bicycle friendly, with a focus on how biking makes life better. We’re not looking for your best images of innovative facilities, but the vibrant faces of the people who enjoy them. We want to see the joy, energy and impact of a Bicycle Friendly America — in action!

Participation is free, easy and open to the public — and the Grand Prize winner will receive a free registration to the 2015 National Bike Summit. Twenty-five of the best images will be chosen by League staff, and then a judging panel consisting of members of League Advisory Boards and Board of Directors will choose the Grand Prize winner, in addition to the Top 10 for a People’s Choice Award. Voting for the People’s Choice Award will take place on Facebook and other social media.

The submission deadline is May 19. Winners will be announced in early June!
