WOBO Presents: An Evening With Willie Weir

"Willie Weir, world-traveling cyclist, author, and columnist in Adventure Cycling magazine, is coming to Oakland! 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. Willie will bring to life tales from his latest book Travels With Willie as a benefit for Walk Oakland Bike Oakland."
