In this series we stop people along the bike lanes in Vancouver and have chats with them about their thoughts on cycling, their bikes, and more. Have a look at the archive HERE.
Christopher Raymond Jenson.
What are you doing today?
Is that something that you do often?
As of about a year ago, yes. That’s when I was introduced to it.
What do you like to write about?
Mostly it’s catered around my thoughts and feelings of the day. Sometimes the past and even the recent future.
And is this what you cycle around with often? [pointing to the intricate system on wheels behind him]
Yes, my urban camping.
How long have you been living like this for?
Many years. Since 1991. There was a bit of a break when my father was ill 3 or 4 years back but other than that it’s been constant for quite a few years.
Do you normally sit out here in the park?
I’ve been coming to Jonathan Rogers park for a long time because of the coffee shop right behind us. Milano’s. I like their coffee.
