The caption for insatpotaoes’ entry was ‘#whentoshift When Spring won’t arrive soon enough.’. Agreed. Bill, one of our judges said, “Minimalist and the turn of frame is a nice play on shift theme.”. Instapotatoes looks like he’s big into birds and wires as well as type, bridges and a few selfies. Follow him at,¬†@instapotaoes . ¬†Hopefully some shots of his new bike will make it on to his feed as well. Congrats!

Two honorable mentions are @jasoncemanski for this shot:

and @thissucksletridebikes for the following shot of which one of our judges said ‘If the contest was for male bonding this would’ve been a shoe in.’.
