BIKE Vail Valley Photo Contest:  It’s Back Again in 2018!

The VVMBA and the Vail Daily have partnered to award one amateur or professional photographer to have their best mountain biking photo printed on the cover of the 2018 BIKE Vail Valley magazine.

The Vail Daily annually prints 20,000 copies of this free magazine with a release date on Memorial Day and distributed through Labor Day.  The guide will also once again be available year round in Vail Daily’s digital version.

The VVMBA is working closely with the Vail Daily on the 2018 BIKE Vail  Valley magazine providing content, photos, trail tips, epic ride information, and more.
