Not the best forecast for the Bike Train, but there it is:
If your current attire just isn't cutting it in this cold then swing by this class tonight:
Be sure to check in with Citi Bike on the status of your preferred station:

And in Washington Heights the NYPD recently engaged in some cyclist and driver outreach:
#Wahi: we were WHEELY excited to spend the day with some of our local #cyclists yesterday. We shared some #VisionZero tips, bicycle reflectors, and spent some time encouraging riders & drivers to slowdown and #sharetheroad.

While down in the village the 6th Precinct wants you to know that THEY WILL CRUSH YOU:
To all bike 🚲 riders 👉 Reminder 👉disobey pavement marking 👉 ride the wrong way 👉 disobey traffic control devices or you do not comply with any NYS vehicle traffic law 📝 WE WILL SUMMONS YOU ! pic.twitter.com/UAzl3dxtmR— NYPD 6th Precinct (@NYPD6Pct) November 12, 2018
As many have pointed out, the car pictured above is disobeying pavement markings, but presumably they've come to a screeching halt in order to write up a Citi Bike user who committed an egregious crime such as attempting to remove one for the dock while wearing two earbuds.

By the way, in case you're wondering about the 6th Precinct's traffic enforcement record, here you go [PDF]:
That's only six (6) tickets so far this year for blocking the bike lane, so presumably some pavement markings are more important to them than others.
