b2b-1Following up on our hugely successful Bike2Market program with Delray’s Green Market, HPD is working on a new initiative in collaboration with restaurateur Dennis Max. Bike2Brunch will focus on Sunday bike riders who are looking for delicious food after cruising the scenic streets of Delray.


The concept behind Bike2Brunch is similar to that of the GreenMarket program:


  • People who bike care about health and good food
  • People will ride bikes more when there is a good reason to do so
  • Ground-breaking bike programs can be launched with minimal effort
  • Creative use of alleys can enable multi-modal transportation
  • A car is not necessary to get to a favorite dining spot


Good times, good times...

Dennis Max, who has launched many restaurants in our area over the past 30 years, including Max’s Harvest and Max’s Social House, approached HPD saying he appreciated our organization and wanted to help. Dennis is an avid bicyclist who shares the HPD vision of complete streets, safe biking, and reduced dependence on automobiles.


Dennis will launch (with a little help from HPD) a Sunday brunch program on April 12 (serving from 10am) at Max’s Social House, 116 NE 6th Ave. The program is designed to appeal to cyclists and will include secure, free parking; designated seating; and a complementary libation.


As a 4-week experiment, we hope Bike2Brunch jump starts a wonderful new tradition in Delray of enjoyable bike rides, beautiful townscapes, and creative and healthful cuisine and stimulating conversation with fellow cyclists.
