Bolt electric bikes can reach speeds of up to 20 km/hour. The price per minute of the ride is 50 cents.
Each bike is equipped with a screen where users can check information about the current speed, the bike’s charge level, and speed zones. Users will find it useful to charge their phone using a wireless charger conveniently located on the handlebars. In addition, Bolt electric bikes have a GPS transmitter so users can easily find the bike on the street.
– We are pleased that we can launch electric bikes in three Polish cities. In this way, we will provide their citizens with a new option to move around the city quickly, comfortably and in a manner not harmful to the environment. This is our next step in promoting the resignation of private cars in favor of zero-emission means of transport, which will also contribute to improving air quality in cities and reducing congestion on the streets – says Valerii Romanov, Bolt Rentals Country Manager in Poland.
The Bolt electric bike model being introduced has a long life span of up to 5 years, making it truly eco-friendly. Moreover, the bikes are made of 100% recyclable aluminum. And the use of a replaceable battery in the bike that lasts up to 90 km of range lowers the overall carbon footprint of the bikes, which don’t need to be taken to a storage facility for recharging frequently.
How to ride safely and by the book
Here are some tips on how to properly use an electric bike:
The driver of a bicycle is required to use the bicycle path or bicycle lane if it is designated for the direction in which he or she is moving or intends to turn.
In the case of footpaths connected to the sidewalk, the driver of the bicycle must exercise particular caution and give way to pedestrians,
Conditionally cyclists may use sidewalks. If the width of a sidewalk along a road where vehicle traffic is allowed at a speed higher than 50 km/h is at least 2 m, and there is no separate road for bicycles or no bicycle lane,
When weather conditions threaten the safety of the cyclist on the carriageway (snow, strong wind, downpour, glaze, dense fog), he/she may ride on sidewalks or pedestrian paths, but is obliged to ride slowly and be extra careful, as well as give way to pedestrians. Moreover, the cyclist must ride at a speed similar to that of pedestrians,
Bicycles may be parked only in places designated for that purpose, and when there is no such place, then as close as possible to the outer edge of the sidewalk furthest from the roadway and parallel to that edge. However in case the nearest bike rack is overcrowded, we encourage you to look for another one in the neighbourhood.
