The Frugal Cyclist in Missoula

Adventure Cycling is excited to be sponsoring a fabulous bike touring event close to home!

Willie Weir, adventure cyclist extraordinaire (and columnist on this blog and for Adventure Cyclist magazine) will be presenting next Thursday, February 4, 2010, at 7:00pm at the Urey Lecture Hall on the University of Montana campus in Missoula, MT. His presentation, entitled “A Frugal Cyclist’s Guide to the Universe: An Evening with Willie Weir” is free and open to the public and a great opportunity to hear first hand stories from Willie’s adventures on a bike. Here is just a little bit more about the presentation:

“Call him cheap, frugal, a tightwad, or an initiator of kindness, but Willie Weir knows how to get the most bang for his buck when it comes to traveling the world, whether he’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.

At this event, Willie will share vivid tales from his latest book, Travels with Willie — stories that will have you chuckling and wanting to chuck your day job and hit the road! This lecture is co-sponsored by UM Campus Recreation and Adventure Cycling Association.”

So if you are in the Missoula area, stop by for a night of inspiration and stories from this intrepid world traveler. You can check out Willie’s full presentation schedule for additional dates and stops on his tour.
