Nice Ride MN: Bike Share Expands in the Twin Cities

12:32 PM PDT on July 29, 2011

Nice Ride MN is a hit. The Twin Cities bike share recently celebrated its one year anniversary in June. And in July they started an expansion by adding more stations and bicycles to the network.

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.
