Our cover story includes the best of both worlds: six family-friendly bike rides for Mother's Day and the rest of May. And as you get into summer adventure mode, check out our list of great summer gear for all occasions, then jet over to the Family Adventure Guide for road trip ideasoutdoor dining to try, and more summer fun!

This month's feature is the next installment in our Making it Work editorial focus, delving into the lives of various parent-entrepreneurs to see how being the boss of everyone provides more balance between work and family.  

Also in our May issue are tips for signing your child up for music lessons, a crash course in private school admission testing, and an adoptive mother's poignant story of how she adopted her second child.
