Presented by Willie Weir

Call him cheap, frugal, a tightwad or an initiator of kindness, Willie Weir knows how to get the most bang for his bucks when it comes to traveling the world -- whether it's giving the world's cheapest engagement ring, protesting an insanely over-priced fish dinner, knocking on doors for free lodging or eating his way to free ice cream. We like to call him generous, as he's set up his February 19th appearance as a benefit for Walk Oakland Bike Oakland.

This evening Willie will bring to life tales from his latest book "Travels with Willie" that will have you chuckling and leave you wanting to chuck your day job and hit the road. Bicycling magazine says, "Travels with Willie is one of the rare bike books that gets it right."

Willie Weir is a columnist for "Adventure Cyclist" magazine and a cycling commentator for public radio station KUOW in Seattle. His bicycle travels have taken him around the globe -- including such 'off the tourist path' destinations as India, South Africa, Bosnia, Laos and Colombia. Each year he speaks to thousands of students and adults, inspiring new adventurers and advocates. For more information about Willie Weir, visit:

Wheelchair accessible around the corner at 411 28th Street
