Willie Weir Returns for Another Fun Presentation

Willie Weir: Bicycling Burma & Beyond

LiveMove has partnered with the University of Oregon Bike Program to bring a presentation by Willie Weir to the University of Oregon campus this week. If you haven’t seen Willie speak he is a fun, light-hearted, and inspiring speaker that will leave you ready to pack up and head out on your own adventure by the end of the night!
Willie Weir recently finished a bike trip in Burma, Laos and Cambodia. His presentation will include images and wild stories from his amazing trip. Mr. Weir is the author of Travels with Willie and Spokesongs, a columnist for Adventure Cyclist magazine, and is known to public radio listeners for his commentaries aired on KUOW in Seattle. His writings have appeared in newspapers across the country and earned him a gold and bronze Lowell Thomas Award, given by the Society of American Travel Writers. He has cycled over 60,000 miles throughout the world.
The presentation is this Thursday, November 6th in 177 Lawrence Hall.  Doors open at 6:00 PM and the show starts at 7:00 PM. Tickets are $5 for the general public; UO Students and Outdoor Program co-op members: free.
