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.

1 Hour Delivery Slots

Choose our Interlink Predict Priority service and avoid the hassle of waiting around all day for your delivery. Interlink will notify you of your one-hour delivery window by SMS and email, and you can track the progress of your delivery on a real-time map, all the way down to a final 15-minute time slot.

Furthermore, if you find yourself busy on the day of delivery, Interlink will off you rescheduling options, both the night before and on the day, so you can select an alternative delivery date, deliver to a nominated neighbour, leave the parcel in a safe place, collect your parcel from your local Interlink depot, or upgrade to delivery before 1200.

This service is available on most items, but does exclude bikes. If you require a 1 hour delivery slot for your bike delivery then please call our customer service team who can book this service for you over the phone.

Interlink Predict Priority is a premium delivery option. Additional charges apply.

Cycle to Work at Rutland Cycling

Cycle to Work is a government scheme, aimed at making cycling more affordable and accessible for commuters and leisure riders. It's a simple three-step process, which will help you save up to 42% on a brand new bike, cycling accessories or a combination of the two!


Find out how the Scheme Works

Step 1 - Choose your Bike and Equipment, Online or In Store

You can take advantage of Cycle to Work in any of our stores and online.

Simply browse our range of bikes, accessories and clothing and decide on a package that suits you. If you’re purchasing a regular bike, the total sum of your purchase cannot usually exceed £1000 (exceptions apply – see FAQs). If you’re purchasing an electric bike, then we work with a specialist e-bike Cycle to Work provider, who can process applications with a higher spending limit. See our FAQ section below for more details.

Your Cycle to Work allowance can be used against a bike, accessories, or a combination of the two. Accessories such as a cycle helmet and hi-vis clothing would be a sensible choice, while a pannier rack or basket will make taking your packed lunch to work a doddle.

You will need to request a quote from our customer service team. Please complete the form below and we will be in touch as soon as possible with your quote.

We recommend you reserve your bike as soon as you’ve chosen it, by paying a small refundable deposit (£50). This ensures you don’t miss out on the bike you’ve picked out, and also means you’ll get your bike quicker! If you’re buying in store, our store team will take your deposit; if you’re ordering online, then please call us on 01572 332032 and we’ll take your deposit over the phone.

Step 2 - Request Your Cycle to Work Certificate via your employer

Once you’ve chosen your bike and gear, you need to check with your HR / Finance department whether your company is already enrolled on a Cycle to Work scheme. We accept vouchers / certificates from the following Cycle to Work providers:

If your employer is already registered on a Cycle to Work scheme…

You just need to request a quote from us, to present to your employer. This can be done either by popping into one of our stores, or by emailing the following information to: cycletowork@rutlandcycling.com:

  • Bike model, size and colour
  • Any accessories, including size and colour
  • Your home address
  • Your email address
  • Your contact number
  • Your employer’s name and address
  • Which Cycle to Work provider your employer is registered with (from the list above)

Once you’ve got your quote, simply present it to your employer, who will in turn apply to the provider for your voucher.

If your employer isn’t registered yet…

You can invite them to join any of the provider schemes above. Once they’re registered, simply follow the quote request process above to get your quote.

Step 3 - Receive Your Equipment & Hit the Road!

Once you have your voucher / certificate, simply bring it in store or email it to cycletowork@rutlandcycling.com. We’ll redeem your voucher with your Cycle to Work provider and hand over your bike (or ship it to you, if you’re ordering online), fully built and ready to ride. Some providers allow us to release the bike immediately on receipt of your voucher; with others, you may need to allow a few days’ processing time. Rest assured that from our side, we’ll be working as fast as we can to get your bike to you!

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the Cycle to Work scheme work?

If you’re a UK employee, Cycle to Work allows you to spread the cost of a new bike and equipment (maximum £1000 in total), by paying in instalments taken directly from your wage. The payments are taken out of your gross wage and your Tax & NI contributions are then worked out based on your new lower gross wage, saving you money on your new bike and equipment.

You’ll enter into a hire agreement with your employer, who owns the bike for the period of the agreement. At the end of this period, you then have the option of buying your bike or continuing to use it while you work for the company. If you decide to purchase the bike, the balance you owe will be based on a percentage of how much the bike was worth at the time you took out the Cycle to Work scheme.

With the Cycle to Work scheme you can get a maximum of £1000 of vouchers to spend on:

  • Any adult bikes (maximum of 2 bikes)
  • Cycle helmets
  • Bells and bulb horns
  • Lights including dynamo packs
  • Mirrors and mudguards
  • Cycle clips and dress guards
  • Panniers, luggage carriers and straps to allow luggage to be safely carried
  • Locks and chains to secure the bike
  • Pumps, puncture repair kits, cycle tools and tyre sealant to allow for minor repairs
  • Reflective clothing
  • White front reflectors and spoke reflectors

    Which Cycle to Work vouchers do you accept?

    We accept vouchers from the following government-approved Cycle to Work providers:

    • Bike2Work Scheme
    • Cyclescheme
    • Halfords (Cycle2Work)
    • Salary Extra (Salary Exchange)
    • CyclePlus (P & MM)
    • SME HCI (Connected Benefits)
    • PRO Cycle 2 Work (for electric bikes)

    Can I pay an additional amount over and above £1000?

    This would need to be confirmed with your employer. We are able to do this up to about £1500, however you will need to find out where you stand in terms of ownership of the bike at the end of the agreement.

    Can I choose bikes and accessories on sale?

    Any bike/accessory that has a reduced RRP can be purchased through Cycle to Work, but will incur an additional charge, to cover the provider’s administration fees. Unfortunately, our ex-hire and ex-demo bikes are excluded from this scheme.

    Are there any bikes I can’t order online?

    Certain brands, including Trek and Whyte, do not allow their bikes to be sent via courier service, therefore these bikes are only available when you make a Cycle to Work application in store.

    How do I purchase an electric bike on the Cycle to Work scheme?

    Electric bikes are an increasingly popular option for commuting; they’re easy to ride, green and cheap to run. Most e-bikes come in at over £1000 [the current limit for most Cycle to Work applications]; however, we’ve partnered with a specialist e-bike Cycle to Work provider – Pro Cycle2Work (PROc2w). The PROc2w scheme doesn’t have this £1000 limit and the best part is that it’s very simple to use. Unlike the other schemes, PROc2w does not require the need to wait on a third party as payment is arranged directly through your employer. Simply decide on your perfect electric bike, and tell your employer about the PROc2w scheme. Once you have convinced your employer that THIS IS A GREAT IDEA, all you need to do is give us a call and buy the bike, then fill out a simple online form. PROc2w will take over from here. Then you can have your bike ... YAY!

    If you have any questions, we’re here to help – just give our team a call on 0330 555 0080 / 01572 332 032.

    Can I use Cycle to Work vouchers in any of your stores?

    Yes you can – you just need to specify which store, when requesting your vouchers / certificate.

    When will I get my deposit back?

    Your £50 deposit will be refunded upon redemption of your voucher. If you decide to cancel your Cycle to Work order before receiving your bike, we’ll also refund your deposit.

    Still need help?

    If you have any more questions, then don't hesitate to get in touch – visit any of our stores, use our online chat or call us on 0330 555 0080 / 01572 332 032.
