Saturday Morning Video

Nice Ride MN: Minnesota's Bike Share Expands from Streetfilms on Vimeo.

Nice Ride is a bike share program in Minneapolis. Really cool at 1:55, putting the station on the street in front of a cafe patio so the patrons don't have to smell car exhaust. What if the Young Avenue Deli was like this? No loud Harley's either.

Des Moines Iowa also has a nice bike share.

I love their Des Moines Bike Map PDF it shows all the bike routes and bike lanes for the downtown area as well as the buildings in 3D so you can figure out where you are.

They also have one of the best farmers markets I've ever been to. They close a 4 lane street so you can walk down both the street and the sidewalks to see the vendors. The wide street allows people to stop and socialize without blocking the way for other people (which is a huge negative of the Downtown Memphis Farmers Market.)
