Cast Your Vote for the Best Photo of All-Weather Biking and Walking

It's May, but we're still getting doused with April showers. And it wasn't that long ago that we were still getting hit with snowstorms too. And you know what? The bikers kept biking and the walkers kept walking -- even when cars were stuck in the snow and schools closed down because the roads were supposedly impassable.

We asked our readers to send in their best pictures of biking and walking in the rain and snow, and the results are magical. The hushed winter wonderlands, the soggy but happy rides -- great images that capture how active transportation connects us to the elements, even when the elements aren't at their most favorable.

We need your help to pick two winners in our Showers & Snow photo contest, sponsored by Ortlieb and co-presented by the Alliance for Biking & Walking. Vote below for your favorite picture and the top two vote-getters will win free sets of waterproof Ortlieb panniers and bike bags!

Polls close at 5:00 p.m. Eastern time on Monday, May 12. The winners will be announced the next day.
