A few weeks ago, I saw this lady going down SE Clinton St. She had four of the six kids in tow.

Just reading the headline raises some bizarre/nightmarish mental images.

When I saw the headline I assumed it had to be her. Or someone like her.

Either way, I was going to be surprised if it wasn't Portland.

Never mind the fact that only one of them is wearing her helmet right.

I do a lot of Trailnet rides around the St. Louis area, and there is a family with a 4 person bicycle. I'd post pics, but privacy and all that.

how does that happen in a city with the rep of portland, they dress like an engineer from IBM?

sporty Emily has been biking Nathan, 11, Mary, nine, Lucy, seven, five-year-old Ben, Olivia, four and Maya, two

Nathan, Mary, and probably even Lucy are old enough to be riding their own bikes alongside her, learning some independence and self-reliance. This is just more attachment parenting.

I hope she obeys traffic laws, they've been ticketing lazy bicyclists who blow through stop signs here recently. With all those vag-droppings in tow, I'm sure they'd get CPS involved too.

Maybe fluoridating their water will help prevent this shiat from happening even more.

The article says she has 6 kids, but why do they keep showing 7 kids in the picture? And since the 7th kid changes from the first picture to the last, who is this unknown 8th kid?

Also, woman, it's a vagina and a bicycle. Neither are clown cars. Learn the difference, Portland's a crap place to raise your kids if you want 'em to do more than meth for a living.

Another "super-mom", bucking the trend of all those stupid lazy moms who drive cars. I'm happy for her that she has the time to piss away pedalling a wheelbarrow around town.

Vagina: it isn't a clown village bicycle.

You mixed up Portland with Gresham, Clackamas, Salem... Well, pretty much the entire rest of the state.

Emily, from Portland, Oregon, said: "It's funny how many people ask me how much it costs, if someone's driving around with a $4,000 car, no one asks, 'Oh, how much does that cost?'

If you are driving a $4,000 car, everyone can tell how much the piece of shiat costs.

Take the rose colored glasses and roll down Burnside, Sandy, Barbur, or even Naito sometime.

I noticed something similar: the kid in the attached bicycle is obviously a girl, unless Mum is also one of those who allow juvenile transvestitsm in public. And then the boy in the last picture looks nothing like the young Waldo in the previous.

Barbur and Naito are your best examples of meth use in Portland?

Did you just bring up a map and name random streets?

CSS:

I was on a trip to the Pacific Northwest and we were driving through Portland. We didn't know about the gas pumping laws. Somebody gets out of the car and out of nowhere an old guy pops up and says "You didn't think you were going to pump your own gas, did ya?"


Seriously, it was like out of a horror movie where the protagonist is in a car and some psycho killer/zombie/monster pops up out of nowhere.

The 11 and 9 year old, most definitely. Get them kids on their own bikes.

The last kid's bike isn't attached. I'd wager the novelty attracts local kids to ride with them. Well, that one of the kids invited a friend and they couldn't be arsed to tether up to the mothership.

Then where is Nathan? I mean, sure he could have swapped the attached bike with a friend/neighborhood kid, but that's clearly not the same kid in pic #3.

In Berlin they have a beer bar bicycle that goes around. Everyone is supposed to pedal while drinking.

(In totally unrelated news, I loved visiting Berlin.)

It had to be in Portland. Yes, of course she's wearing a dress.

I was riding my bike on a Hawthorn Bridge ramp when I nearly ran into her, she was stopped in the middle with one of her friends and all their kids. I knew here before she was famous.

Also, if you see her with random kids it's because she rides with both her own kids, their friends and her friend's kids. She's actually a really cool, cheerful person.

What a biatch! "Let's stop in the middle of the busiest cycleway in the city while traffic backs up into downtown or the Katz Esplanade and not give a shiat about anyone else!"

Good for her. Get the kids some fresh air, and even save a little money. 20 miles a day with that load is pretty darn good. I really wish we had a more bike friendly city. I ride to work two or three times a week and some of the roads I have to take and some of the drivers are not very bike friendly. I started riding three years ago. My feet can't take the pounding from running and I don't want to join a health club. I am still fat and old, but I feel a lot healthier. I wish I would have started doing this a long time ago.
