Multimoding is really your best bet here on the west side, if you're trying to get to work on a regular basis over the hill. There are too many days where I'm just too darned tired to work on climbing the hill (and B-H is too far to the south from where I live to be very practical).

Another obscure option available to you is to use Canyon Road, veering off at Canyon Drive. At the top of Canyon Drive you can dodge onto SW Raab Road (no, the maps don't show it, but its there!), and then pick your poison (by the zoo and listen to lions roar for breakfast, down the Hellway, or even by way of Council Crest).
ORS 811.065 (1)(a):

The driver of a motor vehicle may only pass a person operating a bicycle by driving to the left of the bicycle at a safe distance and returning to the lane of travel once the motor vehicle is safely clear of the overtaken bicycle. For the purposes of this paragraph, a “safe distance” means a distance that is sufficient to prevent contact with the person operating the bicycle if the person were to fall into the driver’s lane of traffic....
