    What about a picture taken while riding your bike during BAFS 2020, but that doesn't include your bike? For example, from 2019:

    My plan is to submit and see what happens.... possibly the organizer hasn't decided yet. My thought is to make them at least a little bike-y, e.g., taken from a recognizable piece of bike infrastructure, from somewhere best accessed by bike (a great C&O campsite, for example), or maybe at a BAFS event

    Yeah, this is what I was basically asking in my third question to the organizer. I wondered if there had to be something bike related in the picture. If it was up to me, I'd say yes, but it isn't up to me

    And if it was up to me, I'd say no. To me, cycling in the winter -- and all year really -- is about the adventure and the views. The best views are from my bike, typically not of my bike. But, like you said, not up to me.

    Yes of course it does.

    Beautiful photograph. The answer is... I will want to see photographs that remind me specifically of freezing saddles. Something that has at least something bicycle-related is good (even a shadow, or perhaps just tire tracks). Gorgeous photos.. yeah, I can't say that I won't consider them, but I will err towards the bikey as the plan is to construct a thematic calendar.

    Hey look, I get to play a reindeer game after all instead of just lying about it on the form! /s

    Seriously, great contest. Much more likely to do this than to remember to tag my errands or coffee shop/brewery visits.

    Love the idea of a bike-themed calendar. I just sent my mom one for Christmas of pictures I took from my bike in 2019 (titled "Bikes and Views"); this was not one of them, but there were a lot of the Capitol at sunset or the Reflecting Pool at sunrise ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Obviously one important feature will be that the photos are taken with a high-enough resolution that they can print on 8x11 or 12x12. Look forward to seeing what I can contribute!

    Thanks! There was a photography contest the first year or two that I played Freezing Saddles. I've missed it.
