Do a pre-ride check
Before you start a ride: adjust the seat to fit your height, squeeze the brakes to make sure there’s resistance and check the tires. Press the Start button on the bike to ensure the battery has power. If there’s a problem with the bike, just dock it and hit the red “wrench” button, then choose a different bike.
Wear a helmet
All Ford GoBike users are encouraged to wear a helmet while riding. Make sure yours fits snugly, wear it level on your head and always buckle the chin strap.
Use both brakes
Be sure to use both brakes at the same time - never just the front brake. Using the brake will deactivate the motor, but once the brakes are released, the motor will resume when you start pedaling.
Mind the tracks
The most important things to remember when crossing railways is your angle and speed. Always cross tracks perpendicularly. Be careful and go slowly.
