Jason is a longtime mountain and road cyclist who became a Board member to help promote this underutilized asset as free fitness alternative and safer commuter path. “It has a tremendous amount of potential for connecting a city that desperately needs safe, reliable, traversing in lieu of insufficient biking lanes,” he says. Jason helps identify maintenance needs and opportunities for improvement on the trail, ranging from entertainment to education to safety. He also designed the new trail signs (his favorite project to have participated in so far), promotional and educational materials, and all things Friends. A fitness enthusiast, Jason’s favorite Strava segment is “Santa Fe Climb Section 1” “because it will test your mettle and then flattens out in a corridor bordered by beautiful trees.” He can often be found on two wheels shortly after sunrise, enjoying the sights and sounds of the city and its wildlife waking around him.
