Station full?

Lock the bike to itself with the cable lock near station. Press OK return.

Temporarily Locking Your Bike 

During your rental, you may temporarily lock the bike outside of official Healthy Ride stations by using the cable lock. To park your bike temporarily, lock your bike to itself using the cable lock and press the red Park or C/P button. Your bike is now parked! When you return to the bicycle, either enter in your 6-digit customer pin code or the bicycle unlock code located in the app or your rental text message. Hit OK. Until the bike is returned to an official station, time will continue to count against your 30 or 60 minutes.


Returning vs. Parking 

To return your bike, dock it at an official Healthy Ride station, lock it, and press the green OK button. To temporarily park your bike, lock it to itself and press the red button.
