Like you were going to ride them anyway (although with how much they weigh it would be pretty fun to go skidding around on them).
Hello Hubway rider,
Due to a forecast of inclement weather, Hubway will temporarily close at 11 AM on Thursday, February 9th, for the safety of our riders and staff. Once the closure has begun, no bikes can be rented at the stations, though any bikes in use at that time can be returned to any Hubway station with an available dock.
Following the storm, Hubway field staff will be working to clear stations, after which the Cambridge stations will reopen. Stations in Boston, Brookline, and Somerville, which are already closed, will remain closed for the remainder of the season.
We understand that forecasts vary and may change, and we will make sure to get updates to you. Closure and re-opening information will be posted to the Hubway website, Facebook, and Twitter. We will also send another email when the system is ready to reopen. For real-time station, bike, and dock availability, visit our station map, or call to speak with a Member Service Representative at 1-855-9HUBWAY (948-2929).
Thank you for your cooperation,
The Hubway Team

Reddit user Tmaeee took this fun shot sequence.
Best part so far has been the lack of cars on the road, honestly I would love to see it like this all the time. (the no cars, not the 3 feet of blowing snow)
Share your snow pics in the comments. I was out today, and yes I saw some cyclists, hard core Boston, hard core.

(Get your bike off the street, or it could end up like this poor soul)
Who rode into work today? Who is planning on doing a little snow biking? Any adventure, plans, parties? Want to talk about anything else? Blizzard day snowy open thread below, leave your thoughts in the comments.
I rode in today, and hope to escape before the real bad stuff starts. In case anyone is wondering the secret to riding in a blizzard, its to wait till a truck rolls down the street then ride in the tire track. Go slow, in a straight line, take the lane, and don’t lean into the turns.
