For some, commuting on bicycle is nothing new. Carla Gramlich began riding to her job when she moved to Tacoma in 1992.

She bikes the 1½-mile trip to her office at AT&T almost every day, regardless of weather – even if that means occasionally navigating ice and snow.

It’s become a crucial part of her routine.

"If I have to use my car, I have to start taking things off the bike and put it in the car," she said. "It’s become more of a hassle to drive."
