SDMB Photo Contest

SDMB wants your photos! Sonoran Desert Mountain Bicyclists is running our first ever photo contest to celebrate our new tool trailer, purchased with a grant from REI. The winning photo will be featured on the graphic wrap on our tool trailer, and will be seen at trailheads and events all over Tucson and Pima County. The Sonoran Desert is an amazing and unique place to live and ride; help us showcase it by submitting your photos of mountain biking in the desert!

In addition to getting their photo featured on our trailer and website, the winner will receive a $100 gift card to Tucson Endurance Performance Center and an SDMB swag bag with a trucker cap, hoodie, flask and t-shirt. Four (4) runners-up will get an SDMB flask and their photos featured on our website. The contest runs September 26-October 26. The winner will be announced at SDMB’s Pint Night on November 4 at Borderlands Brewery.
