Rebecca AlbrechtPosted: July 31, 2013
With her upright Dutch bike, basket full of silk flowers, closed chainguard, always-on panniers, and lack of helmet, Brookline resident Rebecca brings a little bit of the flavor of Amsterdam to the streets of Boston every day. Rebecca has ridden a bicycle for transportation since she was 23 years old, and with her husband Paul raised their two children to love and enjoy cycling too. We will get to Paul in an upcoming post.
Rebecca and Paul plan to retire to the Assen, a small town in the north of the Netherlands, in 2017. Says Rebecca, “I look forward to bicycling everywhere during the last thirty years of my life, along with all of the other old and young people on wide bike paths that go everywhere free of conflict from cars.”
Rebecca is about to launch her own blog: http://sexagenariancyclist.wordpress.com/. Stay tuned!
An alternate photograph of Rebecca appears in the current issue of Momentum Magazine, Issue #62.
Ride on, Rebecca!
