In my surrounding, paradoxically, the bike tends to be the most reliable means of transport. We live by a minor street, deep inside an area with streets that come late in the priority of snow plowing. Thus, when there is a sudden intense snow fall, it may be impossible to drive out by car. However, with a bike you just need to walk it to a main road and you are good. The public transport can also become sketchy or stop when the weather is bad and, with a bike, I only need to plan well and give myself enough time to reach my destination.
