Every Friday we give you guys the opportunity to win a B'Twin 300 multi tool courtesy of the guys over at Decathlon. This week though, we're throwing some of our own schwag into the mix and offering our five favourite photos the chance to win some postage bags of goodies!
Inside these goodie bags will be a selection of gear which you can buy for yourselves over at the road.cc shop. The catch is, you'll be getting yours for free. So, expect some socks and stickers in the post, if you send us a worthy photo.
What's in a worthy photo, you might ask? Well, let's take a look back at some of our past favourites, and we'll explain to you what we loved about them:
We love atmosphere. We love it when you capture a unique cycling moment and send it our way. So shots like Instagram user eachann.gillies will always go down well.
Stunning landscapes are always a winner too. We know some of you live in some pretty awesome parts of the world, and some of you, like John Sanderson, have spent summers away in some beautiful places. Send us photos of your stunning scenery.

France Day Five: Reflecting on 14 hours on the bike yesterday. Rocking up Alpe d'Huez at 10pm last night and having hundreds of punters in the bar applauding us will live with me forever. #whathaveyoudone #betterbybike #cycling #cyclist #triathlete #triathlon #swimbikerun #training #tritraining #triordie #inspiration #motivation #noexcuses #cyclelife #bikelife #France #Oz #rhonealps #alpedhuez #Marmotte #orrobikes #mycyclingweekend #garmin #garmin810
If your location isn't as epically endowed, don't fret, we're not all about size here at road.cc; not in terms of megapixels, mountains, or muscles. We love all cyclists, we love seeing you riding and having fun. Capturing a moment of joy or a really beautiful cycling memory is just as precious to us as a stunning overview of an alpine valley.

The weather is also a never ending well of great photo opportunities. If it's exceptionally warm, slip us a shot of you sweating your bibs off. If it's raining cats and dogs, grab a photo of you taking a brief moments shelter from the onslaught. If the weather's brutal - we're talking hey snow or hail - we want a photo of you toughing it out up an equally unforgiving climb

And finally, if you've got an exceptional group of riders who are your motivation and shoulder to lean on when things get tough out there, we want a photo of them. Group shots are great.

We think you've got the idea.
Remember, to be in with a chance of winning all you've got to do is ping a post on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter our way by including the #mycyclingweekend hashtag. It's really as easy as that.
Elliot joined team road.cc bright eyed, bushy tailed, and straight out of university.
Raised in front of cathode ray tube screens bearing the images of Miguel Indurain and Lance Armstrong, Elliot's always had cycling in his veins.
His balance was found on a Y-framed mountain bike around South London suburbs in the 90s, while his first taste of freedom came when he claimed his father's Giant hybrid as his own at age 16.
When Elliot's not writing for road.cc about two-wheeled sustainable transportation, he's focussing on business sustainability and the challenges facing our planet in the years to come.
