Helping Build the New Detroit

Ever since I visited Detroit in support of RTC’s Trail Development team last year, I’ve been keen to tell the story of all the great things happening behind biking, walking and trails there in The D.

Fall 2014Detroit hasn’t been getting much good press lately. But after meeting a bunch of savvy and passionate locals doing creative things to make their city a better place to live, work and get around, I knew there was more to the story that most Americans are getting about Detroit – bankruptcy, crime, derelict spaces.

A few months later and here is my story on the cover of the Fall 2014 issue of Rails to Trails magazine: “Energy, Optimism, and the Resurgence of America’s Motor City.”

If you are interested in the power of active transportation to create new activity and new energy in communities, have a read.

Respect The D!
