Take a Test Ride

The benefit of taking a test ride is you can confirm your size, try different styles of frame and bike and more importantly feel how good the assistance is when you pedal.

All of our stores have a fleet of demo bikes available to try. If you want to try a particular brand, size or motor, for example, it is a good idea to contact the store ahead of your visit or call our customer service team on 0117 452 6571 to confirm we have the right bike for you.
