Join us for our second annual LWA Photo Tour de Valley. We've seen some amazing photos taken by Lehigh Wheelmen Association Members on their solo and small group social-distanced rides. The Photo Tour de Valley offers a way to share those images with awards given for the best shots. The rules are simple:
- Photos must have been taken in 2021
- Photos must have been taken on a greater Lehigh Valley bike ride or during any LWA-sanctioned event (e.g. the Eastern Shore Weekend or LWA Bike VA)
- Those entering the contest must be LWA members (not a member; not a problem--join LWA at lehighwheelmen.org)
- This year we’ll have two categories
- Cycling Photos—must include bike or bike and rider
- Scenics—highlighting the beauty of the Lehigh Valley
- Riders/Photographers may submit up to 5 of their favorite images in each category via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Images must be submitted by 6/30/21
Images will be judged by Dan's Camera City. A $50 Dan's gift card will be given for the 1st place image in each category, $30 for 2nd place and $20 for third. Winners and honorable-mention photos will be posted for viewing.

World Bicycle Relief is mobilizing people through the Power of Bicycles. With six assembly facilities, WBR is empowering people across Africa. So far WBR has provided bikes in Angola, Botswana, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda, South Africa, South Sudan, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Specially designed, locally assembled bicycles are provided to entrepreneurs, healthcare workers and students across rural Africa through sustainable work-to-own and study-to-own programs. WBR also trains field mechanics to ensure access to maintenance and spare parts. To date the Lehigh Wheelmen and LWA members have donated 80 bicycles to WBR.

Community Bike Works is more than learning how bikes work; it’s learning how life works. At risk students from center city Allentown team up with mentors for a 12-week course in bike mechanics and safety. They learn work skills and see the satisfaction of turning a broken bike into a functional one. On graduation, students earn their refurbished bike and a new helmet.
