British Cycling's photography competition winners: in pictures
Published 14 December 2012
We’re delighted to present the latest winners of British Cycling’s ‘cycling through the ages’ themed photography competition. All three photos captured the timeless nature of cycling in a unique way.
In third place was Breeze champion Sarah Bayaidah with her visual interpretation (above right) of how it feels to be a woman cyclist in this generation. Taken at Willen Lake in Milton Keynes, Sarah’s photo captures the young at heart feeling you get when riding a bike, and how you never forget the fun and freedom of cruising along on two wheels. Congratulations Sarah and enjoy your prize – a fantastic Rouleur Annual, full of stunning cycling photography from around the world.
Zoe Allsop took second place with her lovely black and white ‘vintage’ bicycle photo (above left). Zoe took this great photo while on holiday on Il de Re, off the coast of La Rochelle in France. She had an abundance of bikes to photograph as the island is something of a cycling hotspot. Zoe focused in on these two vintage bikes and captured a lovely monochrome image. She’s now the happy owner of a limited edition Il Soigneur musette, ideal for carrying all her cycling essentials on her next holiday.
Finally, to reveal the winner of our ‘cycling through the ages’ theme – congratulations go to Chris Searson. Chris captured this stunning photograph (above) in Turin, Italy after a heavy downpour. The timeless photograph looks like it could have been taken any time in the last 100 years. Chris told us: ‘this photo reminds me that some things just don’t need to change and the simple pleasure of riding a bike is certainly one of those.’ Chris has won a Vulpine merino wool cycling jersey – congratulations from everyone at British Cycling.
Congratulations to Chris, Zoe and Sarah from everyone at British Cycling!
