League of Michigan Bicyclists (LMB) is pleased to announce our first ever Michigan bicycling photo contest. We are looking for striking digital images that highlight the beauty, adventure, and inspirational nature of bicycle travel in Michigan.
Images may be taken anywhere in the state of Michigan and must have a bicycle-related theme (Photos that focus on the scenery of an area must include some connection to or indication of bike travel). We are especially interested in images that showcase the wide range of bicyle-related experiences: touring, road, dirt and trail riding, rural and urban settings, scenery and weather, people, and the emotions.
