As the weather gets warmer and the sun makes its spring debut, Minneapolis is filled with bikers eager to hit the trails (some hard-core locals will embrace their bikes all-year round — yes, even in the snow). With nearly 200 miles of recreational paths and one of the only fully urban scenic byways in the country, it’s no wonder Minneapolis has ranked 6th out of the top 50 Best Bike Cities in the U.S. Ride along the Mississippi River, roll up to your favorite local brewery, or simply enjoy the scenery and soak up the sun.
You don’t even have to own a bike to experience Minneapolis on two wheels. Nice Ride makes bike sharing accessible and affordable. Renting either a regular bike or an eBike is incredibly easy, with over 200 stations in Minneapolis and St. Paul. They also offer a variety of payment options to meet your needs, so you can take the bike out for a couple of hours or get a membership for extended use! Download their free app to view station locations, rent and unlock bikes, manage your membership, purchase rides and more. You can also rent and unlock bikes through the Lyft app.
