Enjoy night bike rides safely.
Touring the city at night by bike is a very pleasant experience. However, the visibility you encounter may be lower. At ECOBICI you can make your journeys between 05:00 and 00:30 and we want you to make each journey safely; For this reason, we share the following tips:
- Check your bike lights
When taking an ECOBICI, you have 2 minutes to review its status. The front light will help you to make yourself visible along the way and that you can see correctly where you are going. The rear light is red to help identify whether you are coming or going and is easier for the human eye to see. Both light up thanks to the energy produced by the movement of the tires, move the bike a little to make sure they work correctly.
- Use reflective
There are many alternatives of reflective materials for your clothing. A good option are the vests, these will help to make you much more visible while traveling in ECOBICI.
- Plan your route
Before going out to ride (much more if you do it at night), it is important to take into account the route you will travel. With the new ECOBICI app you can do this in an easier way: locate the start and end cycle stations of your route on the map, evaluate the best route and off you go!
- Stay alert
During your journey, always remember to pay attention to the road, be aware of other vehicles, pedestrians and traffic signals. This will help you avoid accidents; especially when riding at night, as visibility is reduced. You can also lean on the bell integrated into the left grip of the ECOBICI to notify your position.
Now that you know what is essential for your night tours, whatever the time, let’s continue adding kilometers in ECOBICI through the streets of beautiful Mexico City.
