New Demo Bikes for 2017 for Two Day Test Rides

Two-day test rides now available on 2017 e-bikes and road bikes

Short test ride


If you only have the time or inclination for a short ride of say, 15 minutes, you’re welcome to go for a quick spin on any of our display bikes from any of our shops at any time. No booking required. Simply bring along two forms of id (bank statement or utility bill + passport or driving licence) and leave us your bank card while you go out for the ride. (We reserve the right to withdraw this service when the weather is foul.)

Arranging a two-day test ride

  • Advance booking is required
  • Pop into your local Bike Co-op branch or phone us on 0345 257 0808 or 0131 331 5010
  • We’ll then arrange to have the demo bike of your choice checked over and ready to go from your local Bike Co-op shop on a mutually convenient date.

What you need to bring for two-day test rides

  • Proof of ID #1 – you will need to bring your passport or driving licence along to the shop
  • Proof of ID #2 – we’ll also need to view a bank statement or utility bill as proof of your current address
  • We will take a security deposit of £1,000, which will be refunded in full when the bike is returned to us in the same condition you received it
  • We charge £100 for a 2-day hire (from 10:00 on day one till 17:30 on day two)
  • When you return the bike in good condition, we will reward you with a £100 gift voucher. (This makes our two-day e-bike hire effectively free. Can’t say fairer than that.)

Trying is believing #1 – electric bikes

While we can promise that one of today’s e-bikes will help you pedal farther and faster over the most challenging terrain with comparatively little effort, we understand that trying is believing. That’s why we’re always happy (weather permitting) to invite you to take one or two of our display bikes out for a quick spin when you visit our shops.

Demo Electric Bikes

With its Brose German-engineered 90Nm torque motor unit and battery pack beautifully integrated into the frame design, Specialized Turbo Levo makes a strong claim to being the most refined e-mountain bike range to date.

Demo Electric Bikes – women’s

The women’s Specialized Turbo has the same hill-taming muscle as the men’s models, while Whyte’s e-commuter bikes have been deservedly our best selling electric bikes, ever.

Demo Road Bikes

If you prefer to go very fast the old way (without power assistance) nothing beats a road bike.

Thanks to their unique economies of scale, Giant bikes are always among the best buy in every category.

For 2017 Giant’s Advanced Pro models have exceeded expectations even further, with every model coming equipped with around £1,000-worth of system built wheels shod with extra puncture resistant, smoother rolling tubeless tyres to make the most of the bikes’ pro-quality Advanced full carbon frame and fork.

If you want to discover the difference these wheel upgrades can make for you, we’re offering demo rides on three distinct styles of Giant Advanced Pro road bike.

Giant Defy Advanced Pro 1 endurance/sportive road bike with hydraulic disc brakes: sizes medium and medium/large


Giant TCR Advanced Pro 1: classic road bike with dual pivot rim brakes: medium and medium/large


Giant Propel Advanced Pro 2 aero road bike: sizes medium and medium/large
