bruce-bastion-1Why did you get involved in Human Powered Delray?

 

Moving here from California, I have experienced the value of a network of bicycle lanes and pedestrian pathways. I want to experience the same in Delray, since I am making this my home for the next 20+ years.

 

Where is your favorite place to walk or ride in Delray Beach?

 

I love to run up A1A on the multi-use path and along the beach.

 

What city or project do you consider to be a good pedestrian or cycling model for Delray to learn from or emulate?

 

We should create more parks like the one at Worthing Park. Having more green spaces for residents to enjoy the outdoors is energizing. The second is the bike lane on Federal Hwy.

 

HPD is working on several initiatives. What is the most important improvement you think Delray needs to make to its pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure or culture?

 

I believe two things will have a great impact: reclaiming our alleys and creating a safe network of bike lanes so commuters have safe, multi-modal ways (i.e., walk, bike, bus, train, car) to get to work and school.
