Judge, Colin Lenton says: I’ve always loved this view of the city and seeing it on a bicycle is one of the best ways to do it. Nice photo, and love the sky.
Most Adventurous’ Photo – kelpiuscycling
Sometimes Belmont is magical. Or is that Mat’s aura?? Either wayI give this MTB date two thumbs up. #kelpiuscycling
Judge Vincent Feldman says: I agree with #kelpiuscyling it is the Aura that makes this shot worth staring into. Plus it captures the majesty and adventure of being out in the wilds of West Park.
