Blog Promo: Extreme Winter Commuting

We were thisclose to the snowpocolypse loyal readers, and I for one was scared.  How would I get to work?  What happens to my bus route during the snow?  Can MAX still run in the ice?

We almost had this streetscape.

What will we do!!


We want to know your preferred winter weather commute mode.

While we lucked out this time, winter isn’t over yet.  There is still a chance for Snowmaggedon 2011 and we want to know how you’ll get around when it arrives.

Strap on the snowshoes or skis? Grab a thermos of coffee and wait for the bus?  Call in S.I.C.K (snow induced couch kamping)? What will you do?

To enter the contest, tell us your preferred winter weather commuting mode by leaving a comment or emailing us.  We're giving away FREE downloads of the Bike Map app for iPhone.  Three lucky winners will get a $15 iTunes gift card!
