Tough snow commute? Try a bike
Gregg Ridgeway, who normally bikes to work downtown from West Seatte, stuck with it Wednesday morning, instead of taking a bus or car. He rode down Genessee Hill -- which buses weren't using -- at 8 a.m. with one hour to get downtown and open a bank branch where he's manager.
"It is just more reliable," he said of his bike. "The trick is you want to deflate your tires, which I haven't done yet, and if you cut a fresh track it's better. And use the sidewalk."
