The wait is over! Tonight we begin announcing the winners of the 2nd Annual TDR Rando Photo Contest.
Tonight we showcase the Winner and Runner Up in the Randonneur Lifestyle category.
Winner: Rob Hawks. Santa Cruz Randonneurs, Central Coast 1000K.
This image conveys a great sense of space in a beautiful landscape. I think many will identify with the solitary time spent as a Randonneur on the side of the road. Certainly this sport is more grit than glamour.
Runner-Up: Joe Platzner. Seattle Randonneurs 200K.
Some of the greatest photos aren’t necessarily of beautiful things but rather, tell compelling stories through other subject matter. This image reminds us of both the positive economic value and negative waste we generate during our rides. Is there a solution?
Congratulations, Joe and Rob!
Rob gets a $50 Velo Orange gift certificate and, as runner up, Joe gets a copy of Bike Snob NYC’s book! I will follow up with you both.
