Mastering the Electric Citi Bike: Your Comprehensive Guide

Navigating the busy city streets just got easier and faster with the advent of electric Citi Bikes. These pedal-assist bicycles provide a sustainable and convenient way to travel, ensuring that even the novice rider can tackle the urban terrain with ease. Here's your step-by-step guide on how to use an electric Citi Bike for an efficient and enjoyable ride.

  1. Locate and Unlock: First, find your nearest Citi Bike station by using the official Citi Bike app or website. Once at the station, you'll see both traditional and electric bikes. You can identify an electric Citi Bike by the lightning bolt symbol on both the bike's dock and the frame. To unlock a bike, use the app or your Citi Bike member key. For casual users, purchase a day pass at the kiosk and enter the provided ride code.

  2. Adjust and Inspect: Before you embark, adjust the bike seat to your height ensuring a comfortable ride. Conduct a quick inspection of the tires, brakes, and lights to ensure everything is in working condition.

  3. Start Riding: To activate the pedal-assist feature, simply begin pedaling. The electric motor will kick in automatically, boosting your pedaling effort and making it easier to maintain speed, climb hills, and navigate through traffic.

  1. Pace Yourself: The electric Citi Bike can reach speeds up to 18 mph.
