SAINT PAUL, MINN (April 12, 2016) – Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union kicked off the 2016 spring season by launching the #OnYourPath campaign through sponsorship of Twin Cities-based bike share program, Nice Ride Minnesota.  Pairing physical wellness with financial wellness, #OnYourPath promotes the importance of staying healthy in all aspects of life and will be displayed at a total of four Nice Ride Stations in Minneapolis and Saint Paul.

 

“Our members in the Twin Cities are gravitating towards alternative means of transportation,” Amber Shanley, branch manager at Affinity Plus Minneapolis – University, points out. “With bicycling becoming more and more important in this community, we continually look at ways we can assist in building a better environment for everyone on two wheels.”


Affinity Plus’ support of Nice Ride Minnesota boosts an already extensive list of bicycling-related initiatives in which the credit union is involved. In June of 2014, the Affinity Plus Minneapolis – University Ave branch celebrated the opening of the first bike-thru lane in Minnesota, allowing members on two wheels the opportunity to transact with tellers through their drive-thru services. Strong ties with local groups like the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition have led to participation in and hosting of bicycling events, including Open Streets Minneapolis.


Visit the Affinity Plus #OnYourPath Nice Ride Stations at University Ave. and 12th Ave. in Northeast Minneapolis; West 36th St. and West Calhoun Pkwy near Lake Calhoun; Rice St. and University Ave. in Saint Paul; and Broadway St. N and 4th St. E near the Saint Paul Saints stadium.
