Helton Moraes’ Photo Contest Entry

I ride non-stop since I was four years old, but just around my late teens I realized that bikes and bike riding were integral part of my living. I enjoy every kind of biking modality, from hardcore XC single-tracks to mild dirt jumps to randonneuring to commuting, but nothing compares to touring when it comes to really experience the multi-purpose charachter of our lovely two-wheeled vehicle – specially when it comes to traversing difficult terrain. This photo, taken during a vacation trip through the mountainous southeastern Brazil, is a perfect example of an incredible place I would most probably not get to know if I wasn’t travelling by bike.
