2015 Season Wrap-up Information

Share   |  Posted Oct. 15, 2015 by Anthony Ongaro

The 2015 Nice Ride season will end at 10 pm on Sunday, November 1st. Make sure to enjoy the last few weeks of bike share season - it looks like we'll have great biking weather until the 1st.

Starting at 10 pm on Sunday November 1st, 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, 2015, your key will continue working until July 31, 2016. 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 2015 another record setting year for Nice Ride. Thank you for using Nice Ride and watch for our return in early April of 2016.

Nice Ride is such a good option to go to work or just have fun. The weather is so great. Why not postpone the time to collect the bikes ?

The weather is so nice this week. Can you extend the season a bit longer!??!?

Considering just how warm November was, it seems like we could have been biking another 2-3 weeks in November. Is it just city's winter regulation that called for a shorter season? If so, can you work with the city to make the start and stop dates of the Nice Ride season be flexible and weather dependent?
