Bike-sharing Nice Ride adds 24 stations around metro


The popular neon-green bike-sharing program Nice Ride Minnesota is coasting along nicely since it was first launched three years ago, and its fleet is expanding this spring, the organization reported.

Twenty-four new stations will be added around the Twin Cities by mid-May, the Star Tribune reports. That will bring the total number of stations to 170 in the Twin Cities. Here's a stations map.

New stations have already popped up in downtown Minneapolis, Uptown and the at the University of Minnesota, the newspaper reports.

More stations are planned for Lake Harriet, Lake Nokomis, ­Minnehaha Falls, Boom Island, Fort Snelling and Webber Park, and along University Avenue in St. Paul. Here's more info from Nice Ride about the expansion.

Nice Ride's expansion comes thanks in part to $630,000 from the National Park Service, $360,000 from Blue Cross and Blue Shield and $90,000 from Hennepin County, the Star Tribune reports.
