Cash in your points

As you help create a more balanced bikeshare system across the city, we’ll tally up points in your Bay Wheels account for each qualifying ride. If you earn more than 10 points in a month, you’ll see rewards ready to redeem.

The goods

Every Bike Angels point you earn is added to your monthly and lifetime tracker. Monthly points start fresh on the first of each calendar month. Lifetime points, as the name implies, never reset — take as long as you need to earn that swag!*
