Like many people, Emily Finch gave up her big SUV for a bicycle. But what makes this story unusual is that she's a mother of six and yes, she bikes them around town in what can only be called a human-powered minivan.
Jonathan Maus of Bike Portland interviewed super-mom Emily:
Biking with kids is all the rage in Portland these days, but biking with six kids between the ages of 2 and 11? That's something I never would have thought possible before I met southeast Portland resident Emily Finch.
Finch, 34, is a powerhouse. Watching her pedal her bakfiets cargo bike with four kids in the front, another one in a child seat behind her, and another one on a bike attached to hers via the rear rack, is a sight that not only inspires — it forces you to re-think what's possible.
