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.

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.
