The 2013 Nice Ride season will end at 10pm on Sunday November 3rd. The forecast looks good for a few more rides before we shut down.
Starting at 10pm on Sunday November 3rd, all stations will be locked. Users will be able to return bikes to stations but new rentals will not be allowed. Please plan accordingly. Crews will begin removing equipment from the streets in the following days.
If you're a yearly subscriber, please hang on to your key. Yearly subscriptions last a full 365 days from the date your key was activated. If your subscription began on August 1st, 2013, your key will continue working until July 31, 2014. You will continue to use the same key next year.
The Nice Ride season typically runs from the first week of April, through the first week of November, weather permitting. Many of our location permits require us to remove equipment from streets and sidewalks before significant snowfall occurs to accommodate snow plowing. In addition, exposing our equipment to road salt would violate the terms of our equipment warranties.
Thanks to everyone who helped make 2013 another record setting year for Nice Ride. We're ending the year with over 305,000 rentals, our best season ever. If you'd like to know more about what we've been up to, be sure to check out our newly released 2013 annual report.
Thank you for using Nice Ride, watch for our return in early April of 2014.
