The Office of Sustainability is excited to announce the launch of a new bike share program.

  • To join Colby’s iBike Bike Share Program:
    1. Download the Movatic app.
    2. Join the Colby College private system using your Colby email address.
    3. Carefully read the iBike User Agreement. For all users 18 years or older, the User Agreement can be electronically signed in the app. All users under the age of 18 must print out the iBike User Agreement and submit it to the Office of Sustainability with both the user and parent’s signature.
    4. While near the bikes, unlock a bike through the app. You will hear the lock beep when it releases the bike.
    5. Use the bike for up to 6 hours and then return it to the bike share rack. You need to click the lock into place, verify that it has secured, and then end your ride in the app. Failure to do so will mean the bike is still associated with your account and is still your responsibility. If the Bluetooth lock fails to secure the bike, please secure the bike with the provided u-lock and report the problem.
    6. Report any problems with the bikes or locks through the Report a Problem feature in the app.
  • Please wear a helmet. Helmets will be available to borrow from the Information Desk.
  • Bikes can be checked out for up to 6 hours. If you allow notifications on your phone, the app will send reminders to return the bike. Users who habitually fail to return bikes on time will lose bike share privileges.
  • Riders are responsible for the care and return of the bike they have checked out. Negligent or malicious damage will result in charges to the rider. The full replacement cost of a bike is $700; the replacement cost for the bike and Bluetooth lock is $800.
  • In addition to the electronic locks, the bikes have an integral u-lock with key that allows a rider to secure the bike to any bike rack while in use. For example, you can check out the bike, ride it to the athletic center and use the u-lock to lock it to the rack outside, then ride it back to the Spa and secure it to the bike share rack when done.
  • Email sustainability@colby.edu with any questions, suggestions, or concerns.
