Is CitiBike ready for the snow?

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

A snow storm is expected to dump two to four inches on New York City on Tuesday. So, this will be the first test of whether the CitiBike share program can weather the wintry weather. But, will riders still ride?

The Department of Transportation released a statement about inclement weather and what will happen to the CitiBike bicycles:

"NYCBS will relocate bikes from major streets to sidewalk and plaza stations and workers will shovel out stations promptly," DOT spokesman Seth Solomonow said in the statement. "If conditions make biking unsafe, the stations can be temporarily locked down but service will be restored as quickly as possible once conditions permit."

The DOT added that the city will plow bike lanes. That is good news for those who still want to ride, even if it freezing and a little snowy.

    Realty TV star Kim Kardashian probably wished she did have one before she walked down the aisle with Kris Humphries. We might never have known about Tiger Woods' cheating ways if he had one. And figure skater Johnny Weir is insisting on one as part of his post-nuptial agreement. What is it? A digital privacy clause.
