Steve Kruse, center, outgoing PBAC Chair, on a fact-finding bike ride with Mayor Liz Lempert and members of the Princeton Traffic and Transportation Committee.
The Princeton Pedestrian and Bicycle Advisory Committee (PBAC) notes that Steve Kruse is leaving the post of chair after nearly eight years. His replacement has not been named. Here are excerpts from that organization’s blog. For the rest of it, here
Kruse is our neighbor, and I liked the description: “Steve is a true bike person. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of cycling, and his brain seems to specifically retain the most quirky details of two-wheeled activities. He has spent years thinking about and planning bike routes and facilities around Princeton. . .”
Among the accomplishments under Kruse’s tenure:
the annual ‘Wheels Rodeo’
launch of the Princeton Cyclovia
and the Princeton Bike Map
and the infrastructure for a cloud drive of bike planning-related materials.
The job’s not done yet, not by half, but as the author notes, “When Princeton becomes a town that pro-actively helps people on bikes, it will be because of the efforts of trailblazers like Steve.”
