3,000 Citi Bike Rides Were Taken Today

January 3, 2014 | Andy Cush

Definitive proof that New Yorkers’ weather resiliency wasn’t left behind sometime in the 1800s: despite lots of snow, slippery streets, and sub-zero windchill, over 3,000 Citi Bike trips have been taken in the less than 24 hours since snow started falling, NYC Bike Share marketing director Dani Simons tells ANIMAL. For comparison, over 10,000 trips were taken last Friday, in comparatively less blustery weather.

Of course, if you’re going to ride in the snow, be safe. “We do encourage anyone who is choosing to ride today to do so with extreme caution and to bundle up!” Simons added.
