Willie Weir

A regular commentator on KUOW, Weir will share stories of adventures and cultural clashes from his six pedaling/eating trips across Portugal and Spain with his wife, Kat Marriner. Food and red wine figure prominently in his narrative. The self-described "cycling fool" has some of the same manic energy as his fellow bike enthusiast Robin Williams; accordingly, his presentations are more like stand-up comedy than dry slide-and-pointer travel presentations. Off the bike, he's got energy to burn; on it, he could probably power a small city if attached to a generator. BRIAN MILLER
