Chip Haynes of Clearwater has been a force on the Tampa Bay bicycle scene for many many years as exemplified by his home-made bicycles and literary works. He has a book signing at 1 p.m. on Nov. 1 at Book Bank in the Largo Mall. It's for The Bicycle Book, a collection of stories, essays and cartoons.
Here's the store's summary of Chip:
"Chip Haynes is a graphic artist and everyday cyclist living in Clearwater, Florida with his wife, JoAnn and over 30 bicycles. Chip enjoys folding bikes, fixed gear bikes, and, well, just about every sort of bike, if only he had the time to ride them all. His advice to cyclists: Keep your bike tires pumped. His advice to non-cyclists: When the oil runs out, they’re all bike lanes. Chip's solo book, The Practical Cyclist, will be published by New Society Publishers in 2009. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org"
