ST. PAUL (WCCO) — The popular Nice Ride bicycle kiosks will soon make an expansion and be made available to parts of St. Paul.

In all, 43 new bike stations are being added to the Twin Cities over the summer.

Mayors R.T. Rybak and Chris Coleman will be taking a ride from Minneapolis to St. Paul next Monday to celebrate the expansion.

Additionally, the mayors’ ride will mark the completion of Central Corridor light rail construction along University Avenue between Emerald Street and Hampden Avenue.

Currently, there are 73 Nice Ride locations in Minneapolis. The summer expansion will bring 500 more bicycles to the Cities.

    Nice no saying of how much this all costs. When we cannot even get budgets balanced this should be least of our concerns. Lets get out of debt first.

    What a joke, what a stupid waste of tax money. We can’t balance our budget, we can’t fix our roads, we can’t keep our state parks open, we can’t afford enough police or teachers but we can afford a $25 million program with another $1 million being dumped into it to give people a bike to ride. WALK… JUST WALK and save the money.


    I’m sorry, at times I just can’t take it.
