We’re ‘blogging live’ from the opening day of Burien’s Wild Strawberry Festival (find us next to the main stage all weekend), where Publisher/Editor Scott Schaefer managed to hitch a ride on the innovative ‘Conference Bike,’ a 7-seat bike where each rider pedals while one steers. Of course, while everyone’s pedaling, you can hold a ‘conference’ since everyone’s facing each other.

The Conference Bike, or ‘CoBi‘ at insiders call it, is part of the B-Town Bike Fair, which runs on SW 152nd until the big bike parade at 3 p.m. today.

Here are some first-hand pics of what it’s like to ride on this cool Dutch-designed bike, which our driver said is worth $35,000:

Yes, that's a motorcycle-grade disc brake.
