Join members of the Leisure Hour Club at their dinner meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 20 to learn about the exploits and travels of Rick Gunn, an award winning photographer, writer adventurer and public speaker based at South Lake Tahoe, Calif.
In the last 20 years Gunn’s work has appeared in countless books, websites and publications including the Nevada Appeal, People, Wend, Adventure Sports Journal, Adventure Cyclist, USA Today and the New York Times. In 2005, he quit his 14-year career as a daily newspaper photographer and rode his bicycle 26,000-miles through 33 countries, over three years. Since his return in 2008, he has toured with a multimedia presentation about the journey entitled “Soulcycler,” while working on a book by the same name.
Gunn has cycled in Oman, and The Islamic Republic of Iran to enact the The Wheels of Peace Project, in which he exchanged letters and artwork between the children of America and the children of Iran.
