Try before you bike

Thinking of cycling?

Simple and affordable, the Try Before You Bike scheme allows you to trial a bike before buying it. Just choose your new bike and accessories using the helpful online tools and the bike will be delivered to you. You will also receive a free cycle skills session to boost your confidence. 

  • Trial a bike or newly new bike for a monthly fee from £10 for children, £20 for adults, £20 for folding bikes, £50 for an electric bike and £100 for e-cargo and adapted bikes.  
  • There's a range of bikes to try with a helpful guide to selecting the right one for you.
  • The bike is delivered directly to your door with a free cycle skills session to increase your confidence.
  • If you like the bike, buy it at a discounted price or pay monthly until you own it. 
  • All bikes come with lights, lock and helmet and you add any other accessories you might need.
  • Maintenance and theft cover available for peace of mind.
  • Free delivery and collection. No deposit, interest or cancellation fees.
