Bicycle Travel Photo Contest

This contest is now closed.

Adventure Cycling invites you to enter your most stunning photos — highlighting the beauty, adventure, and inspiration of bicycle travel — in our 5th Annual Bicycle Travel Photo Contest.

We're looking for beautiful photography representing the diversity and spirit of bike touring. Your original images in digital format, capturing all aspects of bike travel, are eligible for the competition.

We are especially interested in images that showcase the wide range of bike-touring experiences: Groups of cyclists, road and dirt riding, rural and urban settings, scenery, people, and emotions. This year we are particularly interested in group shots. For some examples of exceptional submissions, check out the Adventure Cyclist feature (PDF format) on last year’s winners.

The winning image will be printed in the March 2014 issue of Adventure Cyclist magazine — reaching over 50,000 people worldwide. The image will also be featured on adventurecycling.org, which is visited by more than a million people annually. The first place winner will receive a two-year membership with Adventure Cycling and a $100 gift certificate to the Cyclosource store. Each year we also feature photo contest photos in our annual Adventure Cycling calendar
