Win a copy of the new guide to cycling in the capital, written by bike journalist Charlie Allenby

Bike London is a new guide to cycling in the capital, packed with tips, routes, history, and profiles of London cyclists from Bradley Wiggins to Jeremy Vine. Written by cycling journalist Charlie Allenby, it offers something for everyone, whether you’re an all-weather commuter or a summer day-tripper. It’s published by ACC Art Books on 31 March and we’ve got five copies to give away.

How to enter

Post a photograph with an urban cycling theme (it doesn't have to be London) on Twitter or Instagram, by 16 April, using the hashtag #BikeLondonBook, and tag @wearecyclinguk. Make sure you are following the Cycling UK account – and follow ACC Art Books on Instagram and Twitter too.
We will choose five winners, who will each receive a copy of the book (RRP £15).

We look forward to seeing your photographs!
