How it works:
Take a bike away for the day on a test ride to understand and enjoy its full benefits, feel how it rides and confirm it is what you are looking for. A test ride of any bike is invaluable but a great option for an E-bike or Full Suspension Mountain Bike. Take a Mountain bike around Hicks Lodge, Sherwood Pines or even Cannock Chase to feel the full benefits of a quality frame and components, different travel, dropper seat posts etc.
If you are interested in booking a test ride then we recommend you contact us first, to discuss the options and availability. We have Low Step-Through, Hybrid and Mountain Bikes available from Scott, Cannondale, Merida, EBCO and Pulse. We also have Bike Boxes available to rent, see details below.

Requirements For Bike Hire:
The following are essential and what you will need on the day of collection – you won’t be able to demo a bike without them:
1) Photo ID (driving licence or passport). We’ll keep your ID safe during your ride, and you can pick it up when you get back.
2) Credit Card. For security reasons, we may ask for a pre-authorisation (deposit) of up to £1000 on your card.
Please wear normal riding gear and appropriate footwear. We can provide flat pedals although you may prefer to bring your own. If you’re using shoes with cleats, please bring along your own pedals.
If you damage a bike while you’re demoing it, we’ll repair it and charge you at cost
Some things to note:
Please remember that you are responsible for returning the bike in a reasonable condition and we would ask that you stick to riding terrain for which the bike was designed; if you are in any doubt our team will be happy to advise you which routes would be most suitable.
We’ll take 1p (verified by chip and pin) from your card and retain your IDs during the test ride. We’ll then ask you to fill out a quick form and read and agree to some basic ground rules.
