Amazing. I wish I had been one of those selected to participate. Maybe next summer?

Varying the slideshow speed along with the music was really cool. I also liked the sections which seemed like a sort of stuttering film. Frame capture from video?

Unbelievable. This is such an amazing video to show non-cyclists the fun and beauty of bicycle touring. Also, perfect song choice.

Yes, it took the author 70 hours to put that together.
Beside taking the photos he rode everyday for 58 days, everymile, 4200 of them.

Good video!

I watched about the first 45 seconds and then realized I was getting a head ache from the pictures changing so fast. I tried skipping to other parts of the video that wouldnt hurt my eyes and head but gave up. I would suggest a couple of long shots on a "collage" of pictures rather than flashing endless amounts of really nice looking high quality photos. I wish I could stop the video and actaully look at them all because it looks like you had a great time!

Very nice video, but way too fast. I'd really like to be able to take time browsing through the photos.

All the pictures from the video were (and will be) available on my webpage. The video was for fun/artsy purposes. All the pictures aren't up just yet, because I've been transitioning to a new web layout (that killed off all previous posts).
