I was thinking the other day about all the interesting stories we bike tourists have to tell that we rarely, if ever, get to talk about.
How often have you come home from a long tour and been asked "How was your trip?" and not been able to keep the questioner's attention for more than just a "great" or "loved it" or "wonderful?" It happens to me after every trip.
So, I wondered if fellow bike tourists would be willing to write down some of their best stories as inspiration to others.
It occurred to me that I could sponsor a contest by offering to pay $100 for the "most interesting" story. I liked the idea of calling it the "Making Fun of Bike Touring" contest since some of the stories might be funny and others might show just how much fun bike touring can be.
So, if I created such a contest would you submit something? Would the $100 prize make a difference?
Thought I'd ask before going any further with the idea.
