Bike to Work and OPPO award the best cycling photos on International Bike to Work Day

Cycling is on the rise, at least 18 percent of all commuting is done on two wheels. On May 21st, International Bike to Work Day, Bike to Work and OPPO spotlighted and rewarded commuting cyclists. From 3 to 18 May, everyone could send in their most beautiful bike photos on the way to work during the Bike to Work OPPO Photo Competition. Despite the rain, a lot of sunny pictures were taken.

Home workers too

As many people still work mainly from home, the competition was  open to the wider cycling public. People were encouraged to jump on their bikes before or after their working day and discover the world from the saddle. Participants portrayed the beauty of the landscape or the city, and shared their most beautiful, funniest or craziest bicycle photos. A jury selected the three best pictures from the entries.

"Cycling is movement. That's why we awarded the best photos on which you can feel this experiential aspect of cycling", the jury stated. All three winners receive an OPPO Find X3 Neo smartphone.
