“Roadie” Book Signing in Royal Oak

roadieThere will be a book signing starting at 7 PM this Friday, January 2nd in Royal Oak at the American Cycle and Fitness store on Woodward just north of 12 Mile.

The book is called Roadie: The Misunderstood World of a Bike Racer
and it’s author is local-cyclist Jamie Smith.  The book is illustrated by Frazz illustrator, Jef Mallett from Lansing.

With a keen sense of humor and a wealth of experience as a cyclist, Smith explains the wonderfully addicting but equally strange world of bicycle racing, including many of its charming habits and obsessive practices. Training, diet, several of the Michigan courses, cycle repairs, race strategies, and the puzzling question of why cyclists wear Lycra are all outlined in this unique book. Mallett’s comic illustrations perfectly complement the narrative.

Smith’s book did make the 2009 Michigan Notable Book list.
