Author Bio: A lifelong cyclist, Neil Hanson’s two-wheeled adventures have taken him across America, along the Natchez Trace, and throughout northern Italy. Originally from Kansas, Neil currently lives in Colorado, where he navigates his bicycle up and down the inclines of the Rocky Mountains. His books include Pilgrim Wheels, part one of the deep and introspective journey story woven around his cross-country trip that concludes in Pilgrim Spokes, as well as a how-to minimalist-touring guide, The Pilgrim Way.
Neil Hanson graduated from Kansas State University in the Flint Hills of Kansas, where he studied Architecture and Psychology. A short stint with an engineering firm taught him that sitting in one place and doing one thing wasn’t working for him, so he began a meandering career path to which he’s remained true. He’s worked as a carpenter, truck driver, concrete finisher, salesman, operations manager, computer programmer, and project manager. His executive experience included several years in c-level positions.
