Chip Haynes is an artist, writer, cyclist, juggler and devoted husband to The Lovely JoAnn living in Clearwater, Florida. Chip's non-fiction writings explore the practical side of bicycling, the realistic side of green living and our future with much less oil.
After writing over 1200 articles on bicycling and global resources for The Wire Donkey from 1997 to 2008, Chip had five stories from that collection published in Jim Joyce's anthology, "The Bicycle Book- Wit, Wisdom and Wanderings" in 2007. In 2009, New Society Publishers of British Columbia, Canada, published both "The Practical Cyclist, bicycling for real people" and "Wearing Smaller Shoes, living light on the big blue marble". Satya House Publications of Hardwick, Massachusetts published Chip's "Peak of the Devil, 100 questions (and answers) about peak oil" in 2010. Two out of three won awards. Chip is currently dabbling in both fiction and poetry. Fair warning, that.
