  2. Lock up your bike. We assume no responsibility for lost bikes or attached parts.

  • Respectful behavior: We ask that you respect our staff and fellow users, and we will act the same. If you feel our staff did not treat you with respect, please contact us immediately. Likewise, we reserve the right to revoke membership for inappropriate conduct.
  • Lost articles & bikes: Please lock any possessions attached to your bike or stored in a locker. We do not cover bike damage or theft.
  • Friends’ access: In order to encourage more bike commuters, you may have up to two friends park their bikes with yours. You must be present, and it should be used for guests only. Write down your card number onto hang tags attached to friends’ bikes. Their behavior is your responsibility.

Additional Premium membership rules:

  • Bathroom usage: Please keep the bathroom as clean as you found it. We have a 10 minute time limit on the showers to ensure as many users as possible can use the facilities.
  • Locker usage: Lockers will be available to anyone storing a bike at the facility on a daily basis (you must check-out and check-in to another locker for multiple day usage). Simply notify the attendant if you plan to use a locker so that they can log you in. We may alter the usage if demand rises. Lockers that are not cleared by the end of the fifth day will be assessed a $5 fee. After 10 days we reserve the right to remove possessions.
