Nice Ride bikes roll into town; watch for employee membership discounts in May

Look for Nice Ride bikes to start showing up around the city this week. The Nice Ride bike-sharing program allows you to check out a bike when and where you need one and return it to any Nice Ride station.

Nice Ride bicycles are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week from April to November. To use Nice Ride, you need a membership or a pass. City employees save more than 65 percent on Nice Ride memberships.

Nice Ride memberships and passes typically cost:

*A $4 usage fee is charged every 30 minutes to members whose bike trips exceed one hour. A $4 usage fee is charged every 30 minutes to pass holders whose bike trips exceed 30 minutes.

Nice Ride will contribute $15 toward your membership cost, and the City will contribute $35. That means you pay only $25 for your Nice Ride membership. Watch Minneapolis Matters and CityTalk in May for information on how to access your Nice Ride discount.

Nice Ride has 190 bike stations in Minneapolis and Saint Paul. See the Nice Ride map or download the Spotcycle app to find the bike stations.

In mid-summer, Nice Ride plans to install eight new stations serving the University of Minnesota campus, Dinkytown and Stadium Village.
