And The Winner Of Our Photo Contest Is…

It took many hours to pore over the more than 700 entries, but after great debate we finally picked a winner in the contest to find a new cover for our Bike Touring Survival Guide.

Congratulations to Solidream, the photographic talent behind this amazing picture of three friends cycling through the eastern Sierra mountains in California.

Back on the road

Both of our judges loved this photo, and agreed it should be the winner of the contest. Paul Jeurissen said:

A well-balanced picture that really comes to life. Using the mountain to frame the cyclists really works beautifully.

Amaya Williams said:

This image evokes the challenge, camaraderie and simple thrill of cycle touring. It’s also shot from an interesting angle, the color really pops and the mountains in the distance provide a stunning backdrop for the cyclists.

We also have 3 runner-up prizes to award. They go to:

On Tour In Chile by Garths On Tour

Cañon inesperado by Alvaro & Alicia
Cañon inesperado

On the way to Uspallata, Mendoza, Argentina by Ana Carolina Vivian
Somewhere on the way to Uspallata, Mendoza, Argentina.

All winners will receive a print and eBook copy of the new Bike Touring Survival Guide (due out this spring). Solidream – as overall winners – will also receive a €50 cash prize, while the runners-up get a DVD copy of Tom Allen’s film Janapar.

Thank you to everyone who entered!
