The man behind the Discovery Center

Updated Dec. 3
Do you know Herb Hiller? He's a passionate advocate for bicycling, and had a major part in launching the Florida Discovery Bicycle Center, where I spent last week. There was a nifty profile about Herb and his daughter Magda recently in the Orlando Sentinel. An excerpt:
Both Magda, an acoustic guitarist and songwriter who has released several compact discs, and Herb, the author of Highway A1A: Florida at the Edge, use their work to celebrate Florida's less-traveled hamlets and underscore the toll that rampant development is taking on the state's rural character.
I photographed Herb at the Cassadaga Hotel, where all the Discovery Center participants were staying. You can read the full article at the Sentinel.
