Whether you're an endurance athlete or a lover of the outdoors, you'll enjoy hearing about the Race Across America (RAAM), which Outside Magazine described as "the toughest test of endurance on the planet."

Author Amy Snyder chronicles this 3,000-mile, nonstop cycling race in 2009 in her book, "Hell on Two Wheels," following a handful of racers before, during, and after the event.

Join the KPBS Producers Club for breakfast on May 15, 2012 and hear more from Amy about her experiences covering this grueling race and the challenges the racers endure.

Snyder adds, “Getting to know these athletes helped me appreciate that RAAM is more than a race — it’s a monster and a crucible. As a result, "Hell on Two Wheels" became more than a story about a bike race. It’s an allegory about overcoming personal limitations and self-discovery that offers lessons for all of us, cyclists and non-cyclists alike.”

The breakfast buffet will include assorted muffins, croissants, danishes, cereal, yogurts, fruit, scrambled eggs with cheddar cheese and chives in puff pastry, bacon, sausage, potatoes with Cremini mushroom and scallions, juice, tea, and coffee.

Your ticket purchase also includes valet parking at The Westgate Hotel (valet gratuity not included).
