Great Rides Bike Share

Posted on Saturday, March 5th, 2016 by Kallie Eberling

This week I went on a 11-mile bike ride. I can for sure say that I have never done this before- and my body can tell today!

In my Health Communication capstone class a group of three students, besides myself, are planning a Riverside Bike ride. This ride was held for the first time last year by a different group within the capstone class. This year however, we are planning to expand the ride to include MSUM.

On the bike route we plan on making a few pit stops. One of these stops will likely be at the Great Rides bike share. The bike share is located in downtown Fargo and at NDSU- but it is expanding, and it will hopefully have a location at Concordia in the upcoming years.

Great Rides has a fleet of 100 bicycles which are available for anyone to check out to ride!  There is a touch screen kiosk at the front of the bike share which allows riders to purchase a guest pass with a credit card. Monthly and annual passes can be purchased online as well!

The share plans to open on Sunday, March 27.

Hi! My name is Kallie Eberling. I’m excited to be continuing my education this year at Concordia! I have finally decided, after changing my mind multiple times, on an English Education major. I hope to obtain a minor in Political Science, and I am thinking about law school upon graduation.

I’m from the small town of Plentywood, Montana. It’s located about 10 minutes from Canada and 15 minutes from North Dakota. We only have one stoplight, but we are the biggest town in our county!

At Concordia, I am involved in the forensics team and various clubs. I participate in policy debate in forensics, and really enjoy it!

I’m happy to share my experience here at Concordia, and I hope you can find some useful tips from my blog!
