New Friday Photo Contest: Cyclechic Milwaukee

Sample Milwaukee Cyclechic grab shot. Who is this guy? Somebody's got to know. Pin stripe pants, horizontal striped socks, stylish cap and a guitar, nice ensemble.

 A regular reader of Over the Bars dropped a ton of really good cycling DVDs on me.  He has watched them all and in an effort to simplify his life, he is getting rid of stuff.  He offered his collection of cycling DVDs as prizes if I would start another Friday photo contest.  I said sure.   

The new contest has only one category: Milwaukee cycle chic.  See, I’m simplifying my life too.   

The photo can be a grab shot or completely styled and posed.  It can be a panda, a self-portrait, of a friend, wife, son, or a stranger you see rolling by. I would love to see a wide variety of looks, both male and female.  Messenger chic or haute couture, casual or fancy, tweed or gabardine, it doesn’t matter, just so the look is kind of cool and put together. Come on Milwaukee fashionistas, show us what you got.  

Send the photos to  Please do not send photos to my personal or work email addresses if you have them.  That really complicated things for the last contest.  Include your name, address and phone number if  you don’t mind.  This will make distributing the prizes a lot easier.  

I will add the photos to my Milwaukee cyclechic Flickr page and draw random names for the prizes every couple of weeks if I get enough entries.  You can pick your title from whatever I have left.  Here are the titles that I have to give away:
