End of Season Update & Timeline

Share   |  Posted Sep. 17, 2014 by Anthony Ongaro

The 2014 Nice Ride season will end at 10 pm on Sunday, November 2nd. The weather looks great for several more weeks of riding before then, so if you haven’t tried membership yet – now is the time.

Starting at 10 pm on Sunday November 2nd, 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 1-year or 30-day Pay As You Go member, please hang on to your key. 1-year memberships last a full 365 days from the date your key was activated. If your membership began on August 1st, 2014, your key will continue working until July 31, 2015. A 30-day Pay As You Go membership will automatically reactivate the first time you use it in the spring.  You will continue to use the same key next year in both scenarios.

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 2014 another record setting year for Nice Ride. As of August 31st, we had already passed the total number of trips taken in 2013 – we’ll have more data at the end of the season. Thank you for using Nice Ride and watch for our return in early April of 2015.

Bike fitting:

Nice Ride bikes are all one size and have been designed to accommodate riders between 5'0" and 6'6" in height. The seat height is easily adjustable. Our bikes are built for quick trips in the city by people wearing regular clothes and carrying ordinary stuff.
