Willie Weir, adventure cyclist and author, will be delivering a talk at a benefit for the John Wayne Pioneer Trail Organization on October 13 at 7 p.m. The talk, titled “Tiva to Tekoa: A Rescue Dog Travels a Rescued Trail,” will detail Weir’s bicycle journey on the JWPT last May with his wife Kat and their rescue dog Tiva in tow. If you’ve been thinking of venturing out on the John Wayne Trail yourself, or just enjoy a good biking story, you won’t want to miss this. The talk will take place at the Mountain Gear Headquarters at 6021 E. Mansfield Avenue in Spokane Valley. $10 donations are suggested at the door.
