Congratulations to Todd Consentino and Chris Chaney, winners of the Ortlieb Showers & Snow photo contest by the Alliance for Biking & Walking and Streetsblog.
We received over 100 photos of rainy, snowy biking and walking from dozens of photographers. Ten photos made it to the final round; of those, two were chosen by a (somewhat buggy) popular vote. Check them out below!
First prize winner: “Blizzard 2013” by Todd Consentino
This photo is from February 2013, when Boston had just been slammed with 24 inches of snow in 24 hours.
“Most of the roads by us were a mess and there weren’t many non-plow type vehicles on the road,” said Todd. “My five year old daughter wanted to go sledding. Our favorite sledding hill is only four miles away, so we rode our bike. It was awesome! Boston was peacefully quiet.”
