For a Ride with Five

I'm pedaling for four!  Even I am impressed.
Hugo and his friend Molly.  A budding romance perhaps?

One of our favorite things to do together as a family is to go for a bikeride, and it doesn't get much better than going down to the farmer's market together.  Those of you around these parts know that on a Saturday morning, there's not much to do other than go down to the farmer's market.  Which isn't a bad thing, especially given that the farmer's market is year round, and pretty awesome.  It's also just about guaranteed that you will see a lot of friends, which means that as soon as you get off your bikes, you can have the gratification of romping around with some people you love.

Our current setup includes Hugo on a babyseat with me, Lily in a trailer with Ben, and Zosia riding along on her bike.  It works great for shorter rides around town, and if we want to go for something longer, we can put Lily on my babyseat and Zosia and Hugo in the trailer.  My mind is already trying to figure out how we'll pull this one off next summer, but if she can do it, we can too!  Seriously, I need a bike with many baby seats and much bigger leg muscles.  Going for a bikeride with five kids in tow?  Challenge accepted.
