Dave is available for speaking engagements. Add excitement to your charitable cycling event or any gathering by inviting this best-selling and award-winning author to attend. Please contact him directly through this link.

Typically, Dave doesn’t charge a speaking fee as long as you cover his travel costs. If the event includes a century ride or other on-bike event, travel costs include transporting his bike or providing a bicycle on-site.

He can tell your group about:

  • Experiences with pro cyclists.
  • Attending the Tour de France.
  • What it takes to write a book.
  • The challenges of becoming published.
  • Adventures promoting cycling around the country.
  • Inspirational lessons.
  • And much more.

Here are testimonials from other event directors:

“We continue to invite Dave Shields to participate at our events because our riders have enjoyed him so much. Having an award winning author of books about cycling there to talk with, ride with and sign books is a great asset to the event. Dave’s love of cycling and passion for his work is experienced by every rider who meets him. I encourage anyone who gets the opportunity to have Dave participate in their event to do it!

– Colette Johnston, Moab Skinny Tire Festival & Moab Century Event Coordinator

“Having Dave Shields at our event was a true asset. Not only does he have a tie to multiple sclerosis, but he is passionate about the sport of cycling. Mr. Shields eloquently entertained our cyclists and was most definitely a crowd pleaser. He most deservedly has an open invitation to speak and ride in all South Central & Western Kansas bike tours.”

– Michelle Masood, MS 150 Event Coordinator

“Dave’s knowledge and passion for the world of words was incredible and made for a very educational evening. His presentation was outstanding,”

– Marlyn Stewart, Beaux Arts
