We offer 2 types of test ride.
To assess size and give you a quick feel for a bike, you are welcome to have a short ride on most bikes we have in-store. This is done on either the road outside the shop or in a quieter area behind. You must stay in view of the assistant and it has to be a dry day!
Full Day Demo
Ride one of our demo bikes where you would normally ride. Compare it's performance where it really matters. You can have it for upto 4 days. This can only be arranged in-store. There may be a charge for this which is refundable if a new bike is purchased.
Nb: Not all demo bikes are kept on the premises so please allow a few days. We will require an official ID in the form of passport or driving licence with your current address and photo, plus a £300 credit card deposit.
PLEASE NOTE, WHEN YOU HAVE OUR BIKE YOU ARE ACCEPTING FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR IT. THEREFORE ANY DAMAGE OR THEFT WILL BE CHARGED TO YOU.
