Jerry Zelada is an optometrist by day, and an advocate by night. Actually, he’s always an advocate and an activist, because that’s how changes get made at the levels that matter. We talk to him about how bicycling runs in his family and his touring adventures in an earlier decade, the infrastructure debate surrounding Portland’s NE 28th Avenue business district, and how the state of Oregon provided a place at the table for nonmotorized road users in all areas of the state through the ODOT ACT. Jerry’s website is: zelada.com
