No Mini Van for this Mega Mom (Video)

Move over, Sarah Palin — Emily Finch is a real mama grizzly. Finch has forsaken her mini van and SUV for a life lived on a bicycle. Finch runs all her errands, including hauling groceries, by bicycle. Sounds reasonable enough, no?

One small detail: She has six kids.

That’s right, Finch is a mother of six and has abandoned a car-centric life for pedal power. I imagine you’re a bit more impressed with this lifestyle choice now.

Check out the video below to see how and why she does it (it’s her powerpoint presentation for the recent 2012 Women’s Bicycling Summit in Long Beach, CA).
