Q: How fast do they go?

A: The bikes travel at up to 24.7kmh (15.5 mph). You ride the Freebike in just the same way as a pedal bike, except that the motor helps you to pedal so you need almost no effort. However, if you go faster than 24.7km (15.5 mph) the motor will no longer provide assistance. You can change the power assistance in the settings section of the app. Each time you borrow a bike, the new setting will be applied automatically. The modes vary in assistance levels. Faster mode has the most assistance from the bike’s electric motor; standard mode has slightly less assistance from the motor; and slower mode requires the highest exertion level from the rider.
