Bikesharing Just Got Easier


Published:

There’s a reason why, for the third year in a row, Minneapolis and St. Paul were named the healthiest, fittest cities in the country. Not only are our cities filled with green (Minneapolis is, after all, known as the City by Nature), but we are dedicated to preserving and enjoying it. That’s why, after a successful launch in 2010, Nice Ride Minnesota is expanding its fleet, adding 24 new stations, increasing their total number of bicycles offered to 1,550.

The installation of the new stations is set to be complete by June 1, however the season will kickoff tomorrow at Historic Fort Snelling, with a Ride and Rally event. There to speak will be Mayor R.T. Rybak, Bill Dossett of Nice Ride Minnesota, Paul Labovitz of the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area, Dave Spalding of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota, Peter McLaughlin of Hennepin County and Jayne Miller, a Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board superintendent. After, head out on a ride led by National Park Service rangers, which will take you to Coldwater Spring and Minnehaha Falls (bring your own bike, or register ahead of time to rent one). 

If you can’t make it, or have so much fun you want to hop back on the green bicycle and continue to explore the cities, check out Nice Ride Minnesota’s suggested tours.
