      FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

       

      Roll-Out Ride set to bring Motorcycling Alabama to motorcycle enthusiast

                  TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (April 2011) - David Haynes, author of Motorcycling Alabama: 50 Ride Loops through the Heart of Dixie, brings the Roll-Out Ride to seven Alabama cities, over three days, April 28-30. The ride kicks off in Blount Springs, where the author is based and has a photography studio. About Bikes, where Haynes buys his motorcycle accessories, will host the first stop. Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum in Leeds is the last stop for day one. Barber is a cosponsor of Motorcycling Alabama. Day two of the ride will begin at Little Professor Bookstore in Homewood. From there the ride rolls in to Montevallo with a bike safety demo at the Motorcycle Safety Program Day two will end in Tuscaloosa, at T-Town Motorsports. The ride will pick up on day three with a stop at the Goat Hill Museum Store in Montgomery. A stop at Gnu's Room Bookstore in Auburn will conclude the three-day ride. The author will have his two trusty golden retrievers riding in his sidecar along the entire tour, and at each stop of the ride, Haynes will demonstrate how to safely secure your dog into a sidecar.

           Haynes newest book brings Alabama to life in a way motorcycle enthusiast will love. Motorcycling Alabama is a much-needed guidebook; with fifty ride loops of between seventy-five and a hundred and fifty miles in length throughout every region of the state. There are both street bike and dual-sport rides in this handy guide, which is designed to fit in a biker's tank bag. Also included are detailed, color-coded maps of the routes and turn-by-turn directions. The companion website, motorcyclingalabama.info, offers sample rides and downloadable GPS codes for all fifty rides, and hosts an author blog and community forum, including alternate routes for any road closures found on the loops.
