Some of the bicycles that can be rented at NEC, April 2018. Courtesy—VeloRide By DAVID BROOKS Monitor staff Friday, April 20, 2018 Print Henniker NH Granite Geek What appears to be the state’s first bike-share system operating without docks to hold the bicycles at a central hub is up and running at New England College. VeoRide, an Indiana start-up, has put 20 of its bikes on the campus of the Henniker college, one of three locations where it has opened so far in the country. The program began operating April 15 and will continue even when the school is not in session, according to the company.Bike share programs, such as one that has operated in Manchester since last summer, usually have a limited number of docking stations in the community, where bicycles are kept locked up until a customer takes one out. Riders incur a timed charge until the bike is returned to another docking station. With dockless bike share … [Read more...] about Bike share program without docking stations begins at New England College
New England College in the town of Henniker started a dockless bike-share system this month, joining an intriguing trend. New Hampshire has a few bike-share systems, such as this one in Manchester, that require returning bicycles to one of various docking stations in order to no longer be charged by the hour. Dockless bike share is much more flexible, since you can leave the bicycles pretty much anywhere instead of being forced to start and end your jaunt at certain locations. Basically you clock in and out with an app after unlocking the bike, and the company (Veoride) keeps track of it all through GPS. These systems have problems, however, including lack of control – the first one in France closed because all the bikes were getting damaged – so it’s not clear how well they will do. A small, controlled place like Henniker might be better for them than a big city. The NEC program started with 20 bikes. And speaking of dockless, how long before … [Read more...] about Dockless bike share comes to New England College

MANCHESTER, New Hampshire -- John Kasich has been a practicing politician for nearly 30 years, but he's making sure voters know he's still a regular guy. At campaign stops around the state, voters might hear about his Spotify play list, which features Green Day, Linkin Park, Roger Waters and Bastille. He's the son of a mailman -- a key part of his biography he mentions at most campaign stops. He likes Snapchat and Facebook, and like opponent Jeb Bush, he uses Uber. He's also got a pretty good golf swing, which he's happy to show you. Last week, he changed from a plaid button down shirt into a purple and black striped golf shirt between campaign events, much to the surprise of a press corps accustomed to candidates in starched shirts and ties. In New Hampshire at least, it's a shtick that seems to be working. "He takes his pants off one leg at a time, just like the rest of us," said Lorraine Lanski, a Republican who came to see Kasich speak at a Bedford house party last week.

WASHINGTON — President Trump loves to boast about the political opponents he vanquished in the lead-up to the 2016 election, and the opponents he plans to defeat as he runs for reelection in 2020. Senator Bernie Sanders? He’d beat him. Oprah Winfrey? No problem.But analysts say the president could be discounting a more unexpected opponent — a Republican who could challenge him in the primary. Shoots of rebellion have become visible even before the 2018 snows have melted in New Hampshire, two years before the traditional first-in-the-nation primary. If strong challenges do emerge, it could be the first time since 1992 that an incumbent president has been forced to grapple with a real primary contest. Arizona Senator Jeff Flake, who once compared Trump to Joseph Stalin on the Senate floor, is speaking in the Granite State on March 14, as part of a “Politics and Eggs” speaker series that’s a favorite for presidential hopefuls.
