We talked with Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak about the decisions that went into getting Nice Ride MN off the ground:
You gotta go big or go home. You can't put a few around. You're hopping on that bike, it's like a trapeze, you're not gonna swing on that trapeze unless you know there's another one to grab. You're not gonna hop on that bike and cross town, unless you know there's a place to go.
Thanks to the Bikes Belong Foundation we're able to provide this short snapshot of the Nice Ride MN system, how it works, and where it's headed.
