The Weekend Pages #4

This edition of The Weekend Pages is devoted to one thing —The VELOBerlin Film Award, which combines two of my favourite things —film and bicycles, so we’ve spent a lot of this week watching all the short films and then entering into huge debates about what we should rate each one.

I think the film above, Bike, the first time, might be my favourite so far, as it contains shots of Paris, my favourite city, as well as some great looking bikes. But I also loved Experiments in Speed, seen below. I do love a bit of British eccentricity…

There are 18 films to watch and the range is extraordinary, from cartoons to emotional films about litter-picking children in Asia, via a documentary about the Devil. No, not the real one, the chap who follows all the major bike races wearing a Devil costume. If you’ve ever seen the mountain stages of the Tour de France you’ll know exactly who I mean…

The full range of films can be seen HERE. Don’t forget to vote!

The Weekend Pages #1

Welcome to the first ‘Weekend Pages’ post! Here you will find links to my favourite internet finds of the week.

On the Harvard Business Review Umair Haque’s post about having a year that really matters struck a chord with me, as 2014 is going to be a huge year of changes and I want to make it as good as it can possibly be.

In 2013, Team AWOL  (Recep Yesil of Turkey and Erik Nohlin of Sweden) cycled the Transcontinental Race from London to Istanbul. You can find more about their journey here. But what we have really loved is watching the four-part video. Part one is below. If you’re a fan of cycling, adventure and friendship I think you’d like it too.

 

Finally, this week I’ve signed up to the 100 Happy Days challenge, and will be adding a happy photo to my Instagram account each week with the #100happydays tag. Even the worst of days can have happy moments and I like to try to remember to be grateful for them. Let’s see how many happy moments I can capture!

What great things have you found online this week? Are you taking the 100 Happy Days Challenge? I’d love to know…
