Citi Bike riders defy freezing temperatures this week
New York Citi Bike riders were undeterred by frigid and freezing temperatures this week.
Citi Bike riders took 9,707 trips Wednesday, according to the bike share program, braving temperatures as low as 16 degrees midday.
And on Tuesday, when temperatures broke a 118-year-old record with a low of 4 degrees, 6,669 trips were taken.
Citi Bike encourages riders to take precautions in such conditions, wearing layers and covering their heads, ears, hands and toes.
Since its roll-out in May, more than 11 million rides have been taken on Citi Bike.
