Due August 19th, 2018 - The Question: What does it mean to travel by bike?

Your Answer: You can answer this question in any medium, be it photography, illustration, poetry, film, audio, short stories, etc.

A panel from the supporting brands will select one winner, who will be given the opportunity to document their experience of riding The Japanese Odyssey, a 2,600km bikepacking event around Japan in October 2018. The project is supported by 7mesh, Ritchey and Apidura, who will assist with flights to and from the event, a Ritchey bike for the duration of the event, and a selection of 7mesh clothing and a set of Apidura packs.

They’ll need your name, contact email address, where you live, where and why your work was made, plus any other details about you or your work that you’d like to share.

You will need to be available to travel to Japan from 29th October for up to two weeks.
