Update: The winner is Jerry of Cupertino, California with his submission of the cyclist on the Embarcadero in San Francisco, California.



Ever since I found the new StreetView version of maps on GoogleMaps, I have been intrigued in starting a contest regarding it.

Find the best cycling related picture and post a link in the comments field of this post. The picture can be of a bike shop, someone riding down the street, or even a cycling sculpture. You can find a few cities on StreetView right now (including New York City, San Francisco, and Miami), but keep your eyes peeled. The contest will end at 11:59 PM EST on Tuesday, June 12th.

Good luck, the winner gets a $10 Amazon Gift Card.

This is an awesome idea! I can't wait to see what everyone finds. I will promote this on next week's podcast to get more people started!
 
Cool idea Michael. I'll have to start looking.
 
388 Market St, SF
http://tinyurl.com/2cgp6l

Messenger or messenger-styled person, trackstanding on a fixed gear with tri-spoke aero front wheel, rear wheel full of spoke cards, shoulder bag, and narrow handlebar.

You can also see him in 398 Market St in the same place, so I assume he's trackstanding. In 408 Market St, he's a bit farther back.
 
300 Embarcadero, San Francisco, CA

[Angle the shot so that you are looking south from the intersection of Embarcadero and Folsom.]

What better place to bike, even for us once-a-year bikers, than on the beautiful Embarcadero with the Bay Bridge as a backdrop. Hmm, I can smell the clam chowder now!

When you get back, we'll go and get some chowder with the family, Fritz!

Another rider in full kit in Central Park. He must have been going as fast as the Google van since he shows up in several shots.
