To create the BLACKLINE prototype, the design team at Minimal took inspiration from cyclists who survived Chicago’s Polar Vortex of 2014. During the course of my research, I discovered that 6,000 people took Citi Bike rides in New York during the coldest day of 2014. There was no data in Chicago, since Divvy bikes were removed from the road (the chains froze up in extreme temperatures). I wonder what those 6,000 riders were doing that day.
