I'm working on a children's novel and the chapter I'm writing has a girl who has never cycled before attempting a 20 mile ride in the country. What advice would an experienced rider give her before this? And more importantly, what pains and other experiences would you expect her to have during the course of the ride?
Sadly, my long distance cycling experience is now so far in the past I can't remember any of this!
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated...
