#OwnTheWinterRide photo competition: winner announced!

Cyclist magazine
9 Mar 2017

After a public vote we have our winning photo, and a winner in line for a free year's subscription to Cyclist

To celebrate the beauty of riding in winter, we asked you to submit your best winter cycling shots, taken while out enjoying the season from the saddle, with the caption #OwnTheWinterRide. 

Now that the weather finally appears to be making a change for the better though, it's time to announce the winner.

We received hundreds of entries across Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, and after creating a shortlist of ten photos, we put it to a public vote. Three photos emerged as front-runners, with over 20% of the vote each, but the final winner was Rob Fryers, with 26% of the vote, for his photo of a bike at the top of a cobbled climb, Cow Lane, and the caption 'A little bit of Flanders, Yorkshire style'.

Thanks to everyone who got involved and submitted a photo, and congratulations to Rob - a worthy winner with this shot - from all of the Cyclist team. We hope you enjoy your prize: a year's free subscription to Cyclist.
