I love ‘NICE RIDE’. Nice ride is our Minneapolis bike sharing system that became operational in 2010, however I only really discovered this year. Unbelievably, I hadn’t used a nice ride before last week even though I have been seeing more and more of the green bike stations all around town over the last two summers. So this summer I bought a year subscription and they sent me a key, and Whah-la! last week I took my first nice ride spin around lake calhoun.
I couldn’t stop smiling! It was so fun.
In fact I had so much fun that this week I had my two-weeker students do a whole nice ride workout challenge. They all got on nice rides and were flying around the lake, stopping to do push ups, squats, ab work, and then hopping back on and busting it out on their bikes again. That was even more fun.
So you gotta check out these nice rides. It is super easy to get a 24hr subscription to use one. You can pay with your credit card at any kiosk where the bikes are located and it is only $6.00 to take a 30 minute spin. You have unlimited usage in 24 hours for 30 minute rides.
I can’t wait until the July two-week challenge. If you want to try a nice ride you can join us because guaranteed we are going to be hopping on those green machines again. I love them. You can see more about nice ride here.
