We Advertise on a Bumper Card at the Downer Classic, Which is Going on Today

I'm slowly putting together my pitch for The Lost Cyclist. It's Born to Run on two wheels. It's the book Erik Larson would have written, if he could handle foot breaks. Or maybe if he could ride without foot breaks.

Today is the Downer Classic. Be prepared to park several blocks away. We're right on the course and the street is blocked north of Bradford. I'm excited to say that the bumper that Stacie put together looks great. It's on the west side of the street, in front of CVS. Mike and Lynn, we'll get you that check!

Here's the New York Times review for The Lost Cyclist.

I can't find a website with this, but I've pieced together part of the remaining tour:

Monday, July 28th, 7 PM
Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh, NC

Tuesday, June 29th, 7 PM
The Regulator Bookshop in Durham, NC

Friday, July 9th, 7 PM
Our pals at Longfellow Books, Portland, Maine

Saturday, July 10th, 12 PM
Brown University Bookstore, Providence
Someday someone can explain to me why there was so much agitation over Brown's bookstore being outsourced to a book chain in 2006, but nary a peep when a museum and zoo bookstore chain took over operations and dramatically reduced staff.

Monday, July 19th, 7:30 PM
The gi-normous Burnside Powells, Portland, Oregon. Does one hyphenate gi-normous? I think not.

Tuesday, July 20th, 7 PM
Seattle Public Library (central branch)

Eh, that's enough of that. We have to give out pins to kids on the bike race treasure hunt. Thank you to the very generous HarperCollins for supplying us with promotional kiddy swag.
