Bemidji is a bike place.

Bemidji offers safe places to ride, great food, entertainment and access to Minnesota's extensive trail system. Nice Ride Bemidji is a pilot project designed to increase biking in Bemidji by both residents and visitors. Nice Ride Bemidji is not a bikeshare program like the one we operate in the Twin Cities. The Bemidji program is a standard rental service offering bikes for rent for a flat fee by the hour, day or week. Bikes are available to anyone 18 years of age or older. Bikes may be rented for 16-17 year olds by a parent or guardian. We do not rent bikes to anyone under the age of 16.

For visitors to Bemidji, we offer a wonderful travel experience. Great restaurants, hotels, and places to ride in town and on the famed Paul Bunyan Trail. Come to Bemidji and enjoy the city on a Nice Ride bike.

Do you live in the Bemidji area? We've got a great opportunity for you to experience transportation on a Nice Ride Bike. We are offering a $11 discount on every rental to Bemidji area residents between Monday morning and Thursday evening. That's the equivalent of a two hour free rental. To receive the discount, send an email request to: mbray@niceridemn.org

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota is the title sponsor of Nice Ride Minnesota in Bemidji.
