I had another great interview on WPR’s Larry Meiller program. We talked a little about my trip around the world on a bicycle, and a lot about working with Poplar Creek Elementary school to illustrate the new book Falling Uphill: The Secret of Life.

Part I

This is my favorite interview about my trip around the world on a bicycle.

Part II

Listen to an interview about my trip and how that led to inspiring children and the make-a-book project. Please note: teacher Kate Krzysik’s interview is at the beginning of the show, and Associate Principal Larry Lueck’s interview is minute 20:52.

Thanks to WPR for helping to sow the seeds of the school book project at many more schools.

Were you ever injured

Above is a picture of the inside of my knee. Almost two years ago I was knocked off my bicycle by a reckless motorist who ran a stop sign. As you can see the cartilage was torn and frayed and I had to have the loose pieces removed. It almost ended my dreams of riding my bicycle around the world.
