30 Day Test Ride

All the convenience of buying online, without the risk
When you buy a new bike at full RRP from rutlandcycling.com, you can now benefit from the added reassurance of our Rutland 30-day test ride. Once your new bike arrives, you can ride it as your own for 30 days, and we're confident you'll love it! However, if it's not right for you, we'll exchange it for another model. (There's a nominal charge of £10 for us to collect your bike - just make sure you keep the box your bike arrived in.)

On which bikes is the 30-day test ride available?
The Rutland 30-day test ride is available on all full price, non-discounted bikes available for home delivery on rutlandcycling.com. It is not available on discounted or special offer bikes, click and collect bikes, bikes bought on finance, bikes bought through Cyclescheme, or bikes bought in store. This offer is only available on bikes delivered to mainland UK addresses.

How does the test ride work?
Your 30-day test ride starts from the date your bike is delivered. You must notify us by email within 30 calendar days of delivery that you intend to return the bike within this scheme. This offer applies to all bikes purchased on or after 14th August 2014. To ensure you remain eligible, we would ask that you adopt a 'fair usage' attitude during the test ride period, and make sure there is no damage to the bike outside of the minimal wear you would expect from a bike ridden for 30 days or a few rides. Please note that any damage to the bike, including damage from incorrect assembly, will invalidate the test ride.

How many times can I use the 30-day test ride?
We will allow up to two exchanges within this scheme.

Andrew and Uldis welcome you to the Whitwell Bike Fit studio

Special Offer

Get a free Advanced Bike Fit, worth £120, when you purchase a 2015 bike over £1000 in store.

 

Improve your comfort and performance on the bike with our personalised bike fitting service. We now offer three separate services to help you find the ideal fit, and we also offer a unique Junior Bike Fit for younger riders (under 18).

The human body is the most complicated piece of cycling kit you own and like any other service or treatment relating to the body, it needs proper diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

If you cycle regularly, you can benefit from our bespoke Bike Fit service. Although the concept of tuning your bike is popular with racing cyclists, our service is just as relevant to you, whether you enjoy hitting the trails on your mountain bike, commuting to work or touring the countryside.

We're a fully certified Trek Fit/CycleFit dealer; this means our team of fitters are fully trained to offer you a comprehensive and personalised Bike Fit.


Booking Essential: Please call us on 01780 460 705 to book your place

What is Bike Fit?

Bike Fit is a process of adjusting your bike to suit you, not the other way round. In your Bike Fit session, you'll have the dedicated attention of our trained bike fitter, who will use the latest techniques to measure your range of movement and flexibility.

The session is completely personalised to you and we'll make adjustments as necessary to your saddle, handlebars, stem and even your shoes and cleats to make you more comfortable and efficient on your bike.





Who is Bike Fit for?

Our Bike Fit is perfect for anybody. Unlike other Bike Fit systems that only provide a tailored service to road riders, our method of bike fit applies to all styles of cyclists and bikes. Whether you own a time trail bike, a mountain bike or a commuting hybrid, our bike fit will benefit you through increased comfort and efficiency.



How can Bike Fit help me?

Bike Fit can help you ride faster, eliminate niggling pain and give you the knowledge that your bike is set up for comfort and injury protection. Your tailored Bike Fit session will include both on- and off-bike assessments and will help with:

  • Correct bike position set up
  • Comfort and ride efficiency
  • Shoe/cleat alignment
  • Handlebar and saddle set up
