Slow is Fast Book Tour with Dan Malloy

In September 2012, Dan Malloy, Kanoa Zimmerman and Kellen Keene rode bikes down the California coast hoping to see their home state in a new slower-paced light -- surfing, camping, staying with friends and lending a hand wherever they could to earn their keep. The result of the trip is a beautifully crafted book and slide-show tour coming to a handful of west coast towns (tour dates below).
