Bicycle Quarterly Photo Contest

Now that summer officially has officially ended, we can start to look back on the cycling season. So much has happened since we started riding in late winter under clear, sunny skies! The events of 2020 have upended many plans, but cycling is the one place where we can live in the moment and restore our spirits.

The Bicycle Quarterly photo contest celebrates the joy of riding our bikes – and of sharing that feeling with our community to inspire others and be inspired by them. Entering is simple: Post your photo(s) and short stories of your rides in 2020 on Instagram and tag them #bqcontest. There’s no need to register or purchase – it’s just our way of celebrating the beauty of riding bikes.

And since autumn still has some great riding ahead, the deadline for the contest is October 20, 2020. We’re looking forward to seeing not just summer adventures, but also some great autumn colors!

We’ll select 8 finalists and put them up here for a vote by all of you. Each finalist will receive a one-year subscription to Bicycle Quarterly, and their photos will be published in the magazine. The winner gets a $ 200 gift certificate to Rene Herse Cycles. We’re looking forward to your photos and ride stories.

    What if you don’t use instagram?

      No problem. Send us high-quality prints by the deadline, and we’ll enter them in the contest as well.
