Getting a bike
About your bike
About electric pedal assist
àVélo electric power–assisted bicycles, or pedelecs, have an electric pedal assist mode that pitches in to supplement the pedal power you provide.
The motor tops up your output so you don’t have to spend as much energy. That assistance depends on how fast you pedal. If you coast, your pedelec coasts too.
Your speed and battery level are displayed on the screen (the level has to be at least 20% for the bike to be released for rental).
If you wan to stop during your ride, you can use the lock provided on the bike. There’s a label in the front basket explaining how your àVélo lock works.
- Pull out the cable at the top of the basket and lock the end into the socket below the handlebars.
- Remove the black key on the left and take it with you.
- To unlock, gently turn the key in the lock until it releases.
Note:The clock keeps running while you’re stopped and you’ll pay the same rate as you do when you’re riding.
Wear a helmet
Helmets are required by law when riding a pedelec.
àVélo is for riders age 18 and over with the following exceptions:
- Riders age 14 to 17 with a moped licence
- Riders age 16 or 17 with a driver’s licence
Before you start, check the seat, brakes, bell, lights, and tires to make sure everything works and is properly adjusted.
Highway Safety Code
Obey the Highway Safety Code and maintain a safe distance from other vehicles and obstacles. Always indicate your intentions to other road users. Use hand signals when you’re going to turn.
Where to ride
It’s best to stick to bike paths or the right side of the road. Don’t ride on the sidewalk.
Don’t ride with earphones. Don’t text or use your phone while riding.
