After a winter intermission, both Denver and  Boston relaunch their bike shares this week.  The two northern cities (along with Minneapolis and Washington, DC) were among the nation's first bike share programs. Washington, DC's bike share is year-round, and Minneapolis's will start up the first week of April.

Chicago and New York are expected to launch two of the nation's biggest bike shares this summer.   San Francisco is launching a smaller, 500-bike program this summer.

New York is actively planning bike share share station locations, and both New York and Chicago are putting together bike share sponsors.

More soon.

Minneapolis Used Cars

Minneapolis is a great city for bike sharing because it's so cold here. It will give bikers a chance to use a bike at an affordable price once the weather gets warm. More affordable than buying an expensive bike outright.
