Best Sign of Spring

Nice Rides deployed

 We’re moving toward a whole new world of dockless bike sharing, but for now, the return of Nice Ride bike racks is among the surest signs that the White Witch is losing her power. Right around Easter, the gray docking stations roll out from Nice Ride’s Midtown Greenway-adjacent headquarters and once again take root in front of parks, bars, and six-story mixed-use developments across the Twin Cities. When the sturdy green steeds are stabled in their electronic paddocks, spontaneous two-wheel freedom is ours again... until fall, when the bikes go back into hibernation and we psych ourselves up for another “Bold North” season.
