[2eme ex-aequo!] Travel by bicycle !

You know, I like Vimeo, this community of passionate video creators, animated and maintained by a very cool company in NYC. This weekend I participated in their weekly contest: the “Weekend Challenge : Call To Action“.[update January 23] I just received the results, I'm tied for second! There's not much to win, it's more for fun than anything else, but if I'm just mentioned in the top 5 it would be the MEGA party in my head! Around 100 videos are featured each week from all over the world (and some are really good!). I let you read a (very funny) excerpt from this week's topic in the language of Shakespeare:

Yoda once said, “Do or do not. There is no try. Only do.” Our nerdy selves can’t help but notice– that is one HECK of a call to action. And it got us thinking, what if we all channeled our wise, inner swamp alien and became as passionate about DOING as Yoda? The world would be a way better place.

So here’s where our Weekend Challenge comes in: CREATE A CALL TO ACTION! It can be as straightforward as “Floss More” or as intricate as “Save the Manatees!” No act is too big or too small! Whatever you are passionate about doing, get the Vimeo community onboard! Make a short video (no more than 60 seconds) urging viewers to act, and make Yoda proud. May the force be with you!

Et voilà la description de la vidéo que j’ai proposé

I LOVE to travel by bike, that’s why I want to share my passion with you. In this video I give you 8 reasons to choose your bike to discover the world !

Mise à jour, vendredi 23 janvier :

The results came in this morning. I'm tied for 2nd! I am really happy.

I just gained 3 GB of space on Vimeo per week, and the publication in the contest newsletter (19,700 subscribers), it may not seem like much, but it's really cool
