Cyclists have captured beautiful or striking images of London taken from their saddle.
From stylised black and white photos of the city, iconic backdrops such as the London Eye, to odd-looking shots of people on their bikes, the entries to date have shown how passionate we are as a cycling city.
More than 500 entries have been received so far.
‘London by Bike’ is sponsored by Barclays, the bank which part-funds the cycle hire in the capital city.
A spokesmand said: “Professional and amateur snappers that can capture the adventure, inspiration and beauty of cycling in the city.”
The winning entries will receive a deluxe London cycling weekend prize including £1,500 of cycling equipment, sumptuous 5* hotel stay and a visit to Dinner by Heston Blumenthal at Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London.
