Remember to follow these safety tips:

  • Follow the rules

    Yield to pedestrians. Stop at all red lights and stop signs. Ride in the direction of traffic. Use the grip bell to signal your presence. Do not wear more than one earphone while riding.

  • Plan a sensible route

    Plan your route before you ride to follow the safest route to get you where you want to go. You can use our app to find your way to a bike you’ve reserved or to a hub when you want to end your ride.

  • Do a pre-ride check

    Check the bike’s tire pressure, try the grip bell, and if you’re riding at night check that the front and rear lights are illuminated. If you have any problems, simply press the repair button and lock the bike to a Bishop Ranch Rack.

  • Be predictable

    Make it easy for the other traffic around you. Don’t make unexpected turns that put yourself and others in danger. Ride at a steady pace so other vehicles can anticipate your movement.

  • Wear a helmet

    Wear a helmet whenever you ride. Always buckle the strap. Replace your helmet after any crash and whenever you see signs of damage. Avoid these common helmet mistakes

  • Tips for turns

    Use hand signals to let drivers and other cyclists know your intention to turn or to stop. Don’t turn or change lanes without knowing the position of the cars and bikes around you.

How It Works

Bishop Ranch BRiteBikes are Social Bicycles maintained by CycleHop. Each bike features GPS technology and an integrated locking system.

Join and receive an account number and pin to reserve and unlock bikes using the bicycle keypad, enabled Clipper Card, your mobile device, or the Social Bicycles website. Each bike can be located in real-time through the SoBi website or through the SoBi app available for Android and iPhone.

Disengage the U-bar and hang it in the lock holster. You’re on your way! Stop anywhere along the way, press the “HOLD” button and engage the lock so other riders know the bike is spoken for. When you’re done riding, lock the bike to the round metal bike racks in front of any Bishop Ranch Building.

BRiteBike Members
