Tonight! “Hell on Two Wheels”: It’s, Like, Totally Your Life

San Francisco is so full of smug bikers that it’d be foolish not to tell you about this OG cyclist: Ironman triathlete Amy Snyder has written her debut book, Hell On Two Wheels: An Astonishing Story of Suffering, Triumph, and the Most Extreme Endurance Race in the World, and you can meet her, buy her book, and get her John Hancock FREE tonight!

Amy raced 3,000 miles on her bike (it’s called “Race across America” for a reason), and her book describes her journey along with those of a few other competitors. And they didn’t just power up Nob Hill on their fixies, either; this is a race that pushes the limits of human endurance. So if you’re a cycling enthusiast, you should really take this FREE opportunity to pick Amy’s brain about the best routes on that killer ride from Embarcadero to Ocean Beach — and, I guess, about success and tragedy and all that.

Sarah M. Smart - Red-Light Special

Sarah M. Smart was summoned into being on a distant ice cream planet
through an unholy union of Two-Buck Chuck and unicorns. They sent her to Indianapolis and then the University of Missouri's School of Journalism
to spread peace and big hair. Perpetually in mourning for the comma, she
has worked for a variety of print media, including Indianapolis
, Global Journalist, and Vox. Since moving
to San Francisco for the booming dumpster-diving scene, she has been an
online operative for such fine folks as , Neo-Factory, and
Academy of Art University. After a day of cat-feeding, hat-making,
dog-walking, vegan baking, and daydreaming about marrying rich, all she
wants is a margarita as big as her face.
