Author, public radio commentator, and columnist for “Adventure Cyclist” magazine, Willie Weir has cycled more than 60,000 miles throughout the world. Some may call him cheap, frugal, a tightwad, or an initiator of kindness, but everyone agrees he knows how to get the most bang for his buck when it comes to traveling the globe, be it protesting an over-priced fish dinner, knocking on doors for free lodging, or giving the world’s cheapest engagement ring.
Willie will bring to life tales from his latest book, Travels with Willie – hilarious tales that will leave you wanting to quit your day job and hit the road. Book signing will follow the program. Willie will make a donation of a portion of his book proceeds from this event to Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition.
