About Us

human_print_frontHuman Powered Delray (HPD) is a non-profit 501(c)3 citizen advocacy and education group made up of Delray Beach residents who want to make it safer, easier, and more fun to walk and bike in this All-America City. We work with local and regional officials to promote and implement a world-class bike-ped transportation network in Delray Beach.

 

The group came together in August 2013 as a result of a comment by Dr. Craig Spodak at a city commission meeting. When Dr. Spodak suggested that the City of Delray Beach create a Bike-Ped Task Force, Mayor Glickstein said, “Don’t let government get in the way.” The Mayor recommended instead that residents create a group themselves, solicit input from the public, and present the results to the city commission. The result is Human Powered Delray.

To promote safe and viable human-powered transportation in Delray Beach.

 

OUR VISION
