Guidelines for borrowing an e-bike

  • Wear a helmet. If you don’t have a helmet, we’ll be happy to lend you one.
  • Be visible. Our e-bikes have integrated lights, but we also recommend wearing light-colored or reflective clothing.
  • Start slow. If you’re not used to riding an e-bike, take some time to get used to the pedal assist, throttle, gear shift, and brakes in a safe place before venturing to busier or faster roads.
  • Do a safety check. We check each e-bike before lending it out, but we recommend squeezing the brake levers to check the brakes before each ride.
  • Watch for cars. If you ride in the bike lane, watch for opening car doors and drivers making right turns.
  • Follow charging instructions. Charge e-bike batteries as directed, and don’t overcharge or charge batteries unattended.
