DETROIT (WWJ) – Winter roads are slippery and narrow, but a hard core of local bicycle commuters are still pedaling to work.
Michigan Tech physics instructor Kris Bunker said this is his fourth winter riding daily from Hancock to MTU’s campus, says he hasn’t had a day that the weather has stopped him.
In fact, it hasn’t even really slowed him down. Bunker admits that his downtown route is short, well-lit and well-plowed.
He says it doesn’t take him any longer than it would take him to shovel the driveway and park.
