Days after the Citi Bike program got underway, a rider using one of the blue bikes was hit by a car in Manhattan Thursday.
Police say the cyclist was riding at MacDougal Street and Houston Street early Thursday afternoon when he tried to beat a light.
He was struck by an SUV, which had a green light, according to police.
Police say the rider flew over the hood of the car and hit the windshield.
His injuries are not believed to be serious.
