Meet the fleet
With speeds up to 20 MPH, our custom pedal-assist ebikes give you the power to tackle bridges, shorten your commute, and see more in less time. Just start pedaling and the power kicks in. It’s like magic. Except it’s science. Or, who knows, maybe something in between.
A few things to keep in mind before you get going.
All BIKETOWN riders are encouraged to wear a helmet. Keep it buckled and wear it level.
Stop at red lights and stop signs.
Ride in the same direction as traffic.
Don’t ride on the sidewalk.
No bike lanes? Use the street.
