Our job is matching bikes to riders, and it’s really important that your new bike is comfortable and fits you properly.

That’s why we offer free test rides on any bike in any store. You can compare different bikes and make sure your new bike is exactly what you want.

To test ride a bike just pop into one of our stores. If you would like to test a particular bike please contact your local store in advance so we can prepare the bike for you.

What happens when you test ride a bike in store?



Choosing your bike

Don’t know what bike you want? Already chosen what you want?
We carry the UK's widest range of bikes from the world's biggest brands, so we are confident we have the bike for you.

If you need help on choosing what type of bike to buy, click here to read our bike buying guide.

If you pop into any of our stores (or give them a call), they can order in a bike for you to test ride by placing a refundable £50 deposit per bike.
You can order any bike into any store using our Click & Collect service.

Click here to see how it works, or add your chosen bike to your basket and choose the Click & Collect option at checkout.

Although you pay for the bike now, you can check it out in the store and give it a test ride. If it's not right, you can easily return it there and then.

How it works on the day

Please bring along a couple of things with you:
  • Debit or Credit card (Chip & Pin)
  • Photo identification
We will take 1p on a chip & pin debit/credit card just to verify the ownership of the card.
You will be asked to complete a quick test ride form.
You will be offered a helmet and any safety equipment that is necessary - such as lights, hi-viz waistcoat etc.

Both the debit/credit card and the photo identification will be retained by the store whilst the test ride takes place.

NB If you don't have any photo identification we will need to take full payment for the most expensive bike being tested, which will later be refunded. The store manager reserves the right to decline test rides at their discretion.
