StreetsAlive! is an event that celebrates people-powered movement. We need the community to come together to help us make it a great event. That means you! There are a number of ways you can get involved to keep this event fresh, unique, and inspired. We’re always on the lookout for volunteers, activities along the route and sponsors. Join us and share your inspiration and energy!
Great Rides Bike Share
We manage North Dakota's first bike sharing system. We've won three national awards for Most Rides per Bike per Day! As a member, you can grab a bike to run an errand, get lunch, travel from the bus stop to your office, or just get some fresh air. There are as many reasons to ride as there are people riding!
B-B-BRRR Winter Classic
Embrace winter and join us for the aptly named, B-B-BRRR
(Border Battle Bike Race on the Red River) Winter Classic. We're looking forward to the 9th annual event on Sunday, January 27th, 2019. The race will begin in Wildflower Grove Park in Fargo. More information available as we near the event.
The Flugly and Wild Goose Chase
Great Rides and Fargo Moorhead Trailbuilders are hosting two events in 2018: the Flugly on August 18 at MB Johnson Park and the Wild Goose Chase on September 15 at Gooseberry Park. Race in either one or participate in the series and race both!
Great Riders Club
The Great Riders Club offers free membership and leads over 100 free group rides spring through fall. Sign up and get rolling with us. We’ll track your mileage and you’ll earn a free member shirt with 8 rides or more in a season. Not sure where to start? Ask us and we’ll get you pedaling in the right direction.
See the world differently by bike. We take adventure to another level to experience the culture more deeply (without emptying the piggy bank). Grab your bike and join us for adventures you'll never forget.
Youth Mountain Biking
We've got the bikes, helmets, and features... you bring the kids! Great Rides has 12 youth mountain bikes available for rental (accompanied by staff). This program is designed to help kiddos learn mountain biking skills and find a new form of play that they might really enjoy!
Great Rides Pedicab
Great Rides Pedicab is a pedal-powered shuttle service, providing similar services to a cab, but on a more localized and human-powered level. Looking to have fun pedaling around AND make a little extra cash? Pedal with us! Pedicabs are leased to independent contracts and are also available for special events.
In an effort to bring economical barricade rental to local event directors, Great Rides Fargo has invested in an inventory of traffic and crowd control barricades. Our rental rates are the cheapest by far and your event won’t have tar-covered traffic control.
