willie weir book coverAuthor, 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. Tonight, 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. Thanks to Willie’s generous donation of a portion of his book proceeds from these events, two Bay Area nonprofit organizations will benefit–East Bay Bicycle Coalition and Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition.

Registration is highly recommended at www.rei.com/stores. When you register for one of REI’s free in-store presentations, we will hold a seat for you until the scheduled start. If you do not arrive to claim your seat before this time, we will release it to the general public. Seating may be available at the door, even if registration is closed.
