We want all of our riders to feel safe and confident whenever they're riding POGOH! There are lots of ways that you can prepare yourself for a good ride, and knowing the rules of the road can help you feel confident and secure.
Learn more ways to ride safe by checking out Bike Pittsburgh's Cycling 101 Guide.
Release the clamp on the side of the seat post, raise or lower the seat to your preferred height, and re-tighten the clamp. Typically a seat is at the right height when you can almost fully straighten your legs when pedaling.
Push each tire hard against a curb or the ground. If you can flatten it, it needs air. Turn each wheel slowly and look for cuts, bulges or bubbles in the tire.
Give each wheel a spin to check that it does not catch against the brake pads or anything else.
Inspect the chain, pedals, lights and frame for any additional damage. Report damages by pressing the RED service button on the left side of each dock or contact email@example.com or call customer service at (412) 595-9421.
Helmets are required for riders under the age of 14, but we strongly encourage everyone to wear one when they ride!
