Travels with Willie is about finding adventure & facing fear, embarrassing blunders & language barriers, ice cream & kindness, Cuba & Colombia, Turkey & Thailand, the world's steepest street & the world's cheapest engagement ring, catching a thief & loosing a zebra, a father's touch & a farmer's embrace, buying time & spending another night. Fellow bicycle travelers will smile with recognition, and arm-chair travelers might find themselves wandering into a bike shop, looking for a passport to adventure. By Willie Weir. Sb. 239pp.

Excellent. After hearing Willie is person the book reads with his incredible voice in my ear. He is the ultimate adventure cyclist, challenging us all to broaden our horizons let go of our inhibitions in traveling to new and unusual places.

Excellent reading. I enjoyed it very much and wanted to read it over again after I finished. What really struck me was the kindness Willie was shown all over the world. It helped to restore some of the faith in humanity I have lost over the years. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves reading about bicycling, traveling or learning about other places, cultures and people.
