My wife needs your help!

Hey foosters, my wife was picked as one of the finalists in a photo contest for our state bike advocacy group. She needs your vote! I think it's the best photo, but I may be a bit biased.

You can vote here. Just use the Facebook "like" button and the Twitter "Tweet" button to vote for her picture. The Tweet needs to include "@MIBicyclists".

Thanks!

Here it is in all it's glory.

It's not a photo of me. It's a photo by me of a cyclo-cross racer. If my photo wins, it will be published in a LMB publication.

I would love to vote for this Outstanding! photo but refuse to use those websites because I'm a stupid old curmudgeon.

Is there any other way to vote?

Unfortunately, no. I guess our bike advocacy group is filled with non-curmudgeons.

They exist. Search Foo...

I was disappointed to find that voting required either FB or twitter. So, sorry I can't help and best of luck.

The photo above is not a photo of me. It is a photo that I took and entered into a photo contest.

I'll save you the work of searching for me in the Ladies of Foo thread...


One of UA's favorite shots of me.

i came, i saw, i.....was conquered.

submit the pic of you. i think i saw a tiny bit of a bike poking out from behind a hill behind you. that makes the pic relevant to advocacy and safety (bikes need to see/be seen).
