Excellent piece about fear-mongering re: kids on #bikes with parents:

OK. So that’s 12 paragraphs of a 16-paragraph story. Fear tinges every single one. If you’re lunkheaded enough to not get the picture and stubborn enough to keep reading, the Globe will now present the other side.

Note not only that this “cycling advocate” is only secondarily identified as the office holder of a more general-interest research body but that Pat Hines was not identified as an “anti-cycling advocate” or framed with any other qualifier, even though her website notes that she founded Safe Moves after her close friend was killed in a cycling accident.
