How did Wisconsin become such a great bicycling state?  McIntyre Library will host an event from noon-1 p.m. Sept. 19 with Jesse Gant and Nicholas Hoffman, co-authors of the book "Wheel Fever," published by the Wisconsin Historical Society Press. The authors will share how they unearthed the fascinating story behind bicycling in Wisconsin. 

Dr. Bob Eierman, UW-Eau Claire professor of chemistry and chair of the City of Eau Claire Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Commission, will introduce the authors. Attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions and engage with the authors.

The event, co-sponsored by the UW-Eau Claire history department and McIntyre Library, is free and open to the public. The authors also will appear at 6:30 p.m. at The Volume One Gallery in downtown Eau Claire.
