Brad Grist

Brad credits his time on the board of directors to his wife. “She started attending board meetings,” he says. So, he did too. Then he tried a volunteer event. “Before I knew it, I was hooked and I wanted to start doing more to try to improve amenities along the trail and safety on the trail.” Brad favors early morning on the Santa Fe and his favorite parts include heading into downtown on the bridge over Haskell (“you get a great view of the skyline”) and Brookside Bridge, with its mural of two cyclists and bike repair station. Getting trail signs completed, funded and in the ground—through the collaboration of so many people—has meant the most to him, but ultimately, he has just one hope for his tenure, and it’s one nature enthusiasts will recognize: “I want the trail to be better when I leave the board than when I started.”
