PikeRide Rules
  • Do not use the baskets to carry humans. They are intended for carrying 15lbs or less. CC students who are caught carrying humans in baskets will be banned from using PikeRide. 
  • When ending your trip, secure your bike by wrapping the cable around a rack or post and inserting the loop end into the rear wheel locking mechanism. Failure to do so will result in a fine.
  • If you are not at a PikeRide hub, secure your bike by locating a publicly accessible rack or post. Please do not secure bikes to residential property. Street sign posts in the public right of way are permitted.
  • When parking your bike, please be considerate of all mobility users and do not impede or block pedestrian or vehicular right of way. Interfering and/or blocking any ADA ramps or railing will result in a heavy fine. 
  • When submitting a photo at the end of your trip, clearly photograph the bike properly secured. 
  • You can end your trip any place within the service area (the purple outline in the app), but you will accrue a 1$ convenience fee if you end your trip outside of a PikeRide hub. 
  • You may ride a PikeRide outside of the service area, but you won't be able to end your trip until you return to the service area. If you ride outside of the service area, check your battery level frequently. Vehicles parked outside of the service area will accrue fees no less than 20$. 
  • Due to campus policy, you may only end trips at designated hub locations on campus (Tutt, Worner, Armstrong, FAC, and the bookstore). Leaving bikes any place else on campus will result in a fine.
  • Bikes should always be publicly accessible. Do not park them in backyards, on porches, or on private residential property.
