Cycling to Self-Discovery (WL)

August 22 @ 6:30 pm

Free

Larry Walsh is a US Army veteran, family man, and author of two #1 Amazon New Release memoirs. After thirty years of working in the pharmaceutical industry, Walsh needed a change; he wanted a change. So in 2018, he set out on a 3,120-mile bike ride from California to Florida. A wise man once said, “If you dig it, do it. If you dig it a lot, do it again.” That’s what he did — racing from Oregon to Virginia in 2019 in the grueling 4,200-mile TransAmerica Bike Race.

He found it difficult to share his experiences in quick conversations with family and friends, so he wrote about his adventures pedaling through 528 towns, covering 7,300 miles, and crossing 18 states. His uplifting stories from his travels encompass two books, Suit to Saddle: Cycling to Self-Discovery on the Southern Tier and Forty to Finish: Cycling to Victory on the TransAmerica Bike Trail.

He lives with his wife in Williamsburg, VA. A proud father of two daughters and a son, he enjoys spending time with family.
