Pedal Corvallis bike locks got upgraded!

The Pedal Corvallis bikes got a huge upgrade this week with an all new locking technology system. A new bluetooth ring lock opens at the touch of a button, so you can spend more time enjoying your time and less time getting a ride. We can’t wait for you to try it out. Click HERE to see what the new technology will look like.


The Oregon Cascades West Council of Governments (OCWCOG), in partnership with the InterCommunity Health Network Coordinated Care Organization (IHN-CCO), have launched a community bikeshare program in Corvallis. Called Pedal Corvallis, the program is targeted to help Medicaid members access medical appointments and personal trips; it also is open to all community members age 18 and older.

The program is operated by Zagster©, which also operates bikeshare programs in more than 130 cities nationwide.

Unlock. Choose your bike and enter the bike’s number into the app and tap Start Ride. After the ring lock opens, remove the docking cable from the side of the ring lock.

Ride. Have fun! Use the ring lock to keep the bike secure at any public rack, if you make stops along the way.

Return. When you’re done, lock the bike back into any Pedal Corvallis station. Press and hold the lock button on the keypad until the light flashes. On the right side of the bike, find the orange tab on the ring lock and slide it down. Place the docking cable from the station into the port on the ring lock. Go to your Zagster app and tap End Ride.

If you’re not a smartphone user, you can use the text message feature on your phone rather than the Zagster app.

Bikesharing provides multiple benefits to our community including:

  1. Biking itself! Biking gets more people onto bikes. 16% of riders wouldn’t have taken their trip if bikeshare wasn’t available.
  2. Business. Bikeshare increases the spending of residents and visitors, positively impacting local business.
  3. Health. Biking just 30 minutes a day can reduce the risk of heart disease by 82% and the risk of diabetes by up to 58%
  4. Transit. Bikeshare reduces traffic, makes transit connections easier, and reduces congestion along busy routes.

Several stats from around the country show the positive impact bikesharing have had in their communities:

  • 33% of new bikesshare members in Minneapolis had ridden less than once a month before joining.
  • 79% of bikeshare riders surveyed in Washington, DC intended to spend money during their trip.
  • Going for a relaxed bike ride burns 60% more calories than walking.
  • In Boston, Hubway was able to show carbon offset of 150 tons per year from bikeshare.

Safety tips:

  • On trails, warn pedestrians and cyclists before you pass, by using your bell or by saying “on your left.”
  • Ride predictably and avoid weaving between parked cars.
  • Ride with the direction of traffic.
  • Avoid carrying heavy items in your basket; for larger loads, you can use a cargo trike, which are available at the Lincoln Station and the 27th Street and Tyler Avenue Station (at Benton County Health Department). Please note: While other Pedal Corvallis bikes can be returned to any Zagster station after your ride, trikes are required to be returned to the same station from which they were rented.
