Jen, Simon & Emma McCutcheonPosted: April 3, 2013
Jen proves that raising small children and cycling and perfectly compatible. Jen, seen here on Green Street, lives in Jamaica Plain with her husband and children Simon and Emma. Simon was quite excited about having his picture taken; Emma was indifferent. Jen has been a bike commuter since 1995, and she and her family were car-free until just three months ago. She rides daily from JP to her work downtown on her utilitarian Specialized bike. On the subject of changes she’d like to see in the cycling environment in Boston, the key word is respect. Says Jen, “I would like to see bikers, cars, and pedestrians show more respect for each other, and for the rules of the road”. Maybe someday Simon and Emma will grow up to be cyclists as well, and in a more civilized world. Ride on, Jen!
