Get the best out of Zyp

Choosing your Zyp bike

The Zyp BikeShare fleet is comprised of both 8-speed bikes and electric pedal assist (pedelec) bikes. Pedelec bikes are distinguished with a white lightning bolt decal on the back wheel. Start pedalling and the motor will start, it'll continue helping you 'zyp' along as long as you keep pedalling.

The regular Zyp bikes have 8 gears so you can take it easy and get the blood pumping.

How do you choose the right Zyp bike for you?

Need the bike for a long time?

Look at the bikes in the docking station for the electric pedal assist symbol (white lightning bolt) to see how many pedelec bikes are available to you at that time. Choose a Zyp bike with a higher battery level, check the individual screens on the Zyp bikes at the station for this information. The remaining battery life is displayed on every bike screen on the handle bars. Push the horn button to view this information when the bike is locked.

No battery, no problem!

Zyp stations charge the bikes so remember to dock your bike often and look for one with higher charge.
