Willie Weir: "What Is Adventure?"

Willie Weir may be the most effective and inspiring advocate in the USA for international bicycle travel, but his message is about much more than bicycling. Check out his latest column from Adventure Cycling magazine: “What Is Adventure?”

I think Willie overlooks an important distinction between perceived risk and actual risk, and I don’t think everyone necessarily should (as he seems to imply) take risks, but he articulates some truths that are widely recognized within the travel “industry”, but rarely spoken.

"Don't believe anything just because you read it on the Internet. Anyone can say anything on the Internet, and they do. The Internet is the most effective medium in history for the rapid global propagation of rumor, myth, and false information." (From The Practical Nomad Guide to the Online Travel Marketplace, 2001)
