Willie Weir presents — Tiva to Tekoa: A rescue dog travels a rescued trail

Event date: 
Tuesday, October 11, 2016 - 7:00pm


Adventure Cyclist columnist Willie Weir and his partner Kat Marriner have been cycling exotic and amazing places together for twenty years ... then they got a dog.  

Tiva came to them via Taiwan. Rescued from a garbage dump, this scared little Formosan Mountain Dog was deemed "The Reluctant Traveler." For the next three years, Kat and Willie worked with the goal of taking Tiva on a bike trip. Little did they know that the trail they'd selected was a recent rescue as well. 

If you love bicycle travel, or dogs, or public trails, you won't want to miss this heartwarming tale of love, patience and persistence.
