Your Bluejay Electric Bicycle can be ridden in cold weather, but it is NOT meant for use in puddles, streams, or in heavy snow or rain. Never immerse or submerge the bike in water or liquid, as the electrical system may be damaged.
When using your Bluejay in cold weather, and please note the following:
- In cold and snowy weather, visibility can be reduced and roads are more slippery
- In cold weather, the contact points for feet, hands, and tires can become slippery
- Decreasing your riding speed is recommended in order to help you control the bike
- Stopping the bike will take longer in wet and snowy conditions
- You must take care to be more visible to others on the road by wearing reflective clothing and using approved safety lights
- In cold weather, the range of the battery will be slightly decreased
- The bike should be stored away from the elements and inside, if possible.
- The battery should always be charged at room temperature (50° to 77°F)
If your bike is ever exposed to snow or rain, allow it to dry out thoroughly and apply anti-rust treatment to the chain and other unpainted steel surfaces. Using the bike in snowy and wet conditions mandates a more regular maintenance schedule to ensure it does not become rusty or corroded, and to ensure all systems are always working safely.
