We've teamed up with world-renowned fine artist Renê Nascimento for a national bicycle photo search. The winning bike photos will be painted by Renê, as part of a one-of-a-kind series.

Renê Nascimento is most recently known for his critically acclaimed series "NYC Bikes" where he captured the essence of NYC streets via one of the most oldest methods of transportation—the bicycle. 

"The NYC Bikes series was one of the most successful series in my 25 year career," says Renê. "For this new series it was only natural for me to give back the community that initially inspired my quest to interpret New York through a different subject. New York City without bicycles is like Rome without mopeds, it just doesn't sound right."
