"HOW TO WRITE A BICYCLE-TRAVEL NARRATIVE
Adventurer and filmmaker Leon McCarron writes at his blog that he has read quite a few books detailing bicycle journeys, only to find that a lot of them aren't very well done. "Many fall into the trap of giving too much banal information, e.g., endless descriptions of kit and routes," he writes, "while others are poorly written and fail to ever really paint a picture of the adventure or conjure up images of characters and landscapes for the reader." He backs up his criticism with some solid advice about how to go about it the right way, steps that include identifying your unique story early on and pinpointing themes, audience, and voice. http://www.leonmccarron.com/blog/questions-to-ask-yourself-when-writing-about-a-bicycle-trip"
