After being bitten repeatedly by the travel bug, Willie Weir left a career as a stage actor, hopped on a bike and pedaled into a life of travel, adventure and discovery.
His two-wheeled adventures have taken him all over the globe -- from the horse tracks of the highlands of Lesotho, to the war-torn roads of Bosnia, to the back roads of Colombia.
He is a columnist for Adventure Cyclist magazine, a bicycle correspondent for public radio station KUOW in Seattle and the author of Travels with Willie and Spokesongs. He is the recipient of gold and bronze Lowell Thomas Awards from the Society of American Travel Writers.
He lives on Beacon Hill in Seattle with his dream travel partner, Kat Marriner.
