DEMO365 - Every Day is a Demo Day

The options available to test are carefully handpicked from our current ranges. Our experienced staff will assess your needs and guide you toward to testing the most suitable models depending on riding style, aspirations, budget etc. If you’re interested in a specific bike or size that we don’t have in our Demo Centre, we may be able to source it from our suppliers. So please let us know and we’ll see what we can do.

BOOKINGS: please phone 0118 976 1130 (test items must be collected from the store).

How does the demo scheme work?

When you sign up for the Demo Scheme we’ll make a small one-off charge (card payments only). You receive a demo card enabling you to test multiple products, to really get a feel for what suits you, and you only need to pay once. If you go on to buy one of the products you’ve tried, we’ll take the fee off the price.

  • £20 - Road bikes
  • £60 - Mountain bikes
  • No charge - Lights, wheels, saddles and clothing

You can take each bike out for up to 48 hours. You can try demo road bikes on the adjacent country lanes or from home. Most people take demo mountain bikes to Swinley Forest, which is an easy ten minute drive from the shop. Swinley has three easy-to-follow waymarked trails, graded green, blue and red, so you can compare bikes on identical test loops. There are also some good places to try bikes off-road in the woodland near the shop. Feel free to ask us for suggestions. Alternatively you can take bikes away to test on your usual local routes.
