After completing the daunting task of sorting through over 700 entries for our 1st Annual Adventure Cycling Photo Contest, our diligent publications team has chosen an excellent winner, along with a handful of runners up.
But before we show you the good stuff, I want to thank everyone who took the time to comb through their photos to submit their best works from bicycle travel. The response was phenomenal and many of the photos were too. So, now on to the photos.
Marco Meijerink, a Dutch photographer and cyclist submitted the winning entry for this year's contest. His shot of a rider in red winding through the lush mountains of Tenerife in the Canary Islands took the prize.
Our first runner up was Tyler Kellen's image of his cyclist's camp site in Southern Italy.
The competition was so good that we gave an additional five photos a runner up distinction. Here they are, in no particular order:
Takacs Tamas' self-portrait on Witch Rock in Hungary.
Dylan Menges' bike on a hill in Ohio.
Eric Schambion's Malian boys.
Dawn Lumsden and Fin Fagan's trip through northern Spain.
These photos are featured in a beautiful spread in the soon-to-hit-your-mailbox March issue of Adventure Cyclist magazine. We are already dreaming about next year's photo competition so look for more great photos next fall. Until then, you can peruse the full set of Flickr entries and get inspiration for your next ride.
