How It Works:
Step 1: Review our available adaptive bikes and hours. (Reservation System coming soon.) Until then we are operating on a walk-up basis, but you may email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a reservation. Provide name, date, time, and bike model.
Step 2: Get Registered: If it is your first time, show up at the Adaptive Bike Share 30 minutes before you want to ride.
Join the Bay Wheels/BORP Adaptive Bike Share Pilot either by using our available computer or your phone. Save time by downloading the Bay Wheels App in advance. You will also have to complete a paper liability and registration form onsite. You will be given a code on site to waive your membership fee.
Note: You will be required to have a credit card to register online.
No Credit Card? If you do not have a credit card; you can register before your visit through the Bike Share for All Program, information is here:
Want to try it before registering? One fitting session and a ride in a limited area is allowed without membership required as long as:
- a) required forms at station are completed and signed;
- b) Two valid ID’s and your mobility device are left as security.
Step 3: Get Fitted and Trained – BORP Staff will help you select an appropriate bike and adjust it to fit you; and train you how to pedal, steer, brake, and change gears.
Riders must be able to transfer to cycles independently or come with attendants capable of assisting. Stepped chairs and a Hoyer lift are available for assistance. BORP staff will assist with balance, stabilization, and fitting, but will not lift or lower weight.
Step 4: Go Ride!
