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.

New E-Bike Centre at Rutland Cycling Whitwell

We are delighted to announce the opening of our dedicated e-bike centre at our Whitwell store, with over 40 bikes now available to buy and hire, come along and chat to one of our trained e-bike specialists today. The range varies from the more casual e-hybrid bikes from the likes of Raleigh and Ebco, to specific e-mountain bikes from Scott, Trek, Cube, Haibike, Specialized and Giant (available at our Giant Store Rutland).

Our unique e-bike centre is home to a 23 mile traffic-free route, which has a mix of terrain perfect to demo any e-bike, urban or MTB, and it's beautiful too. That's why we're delighted to announce that we will be hosting our very first e-bike demo day on Saturday 16th April at Whitwell, sign up below. We will be running fortnightly led e-bike MTB rides at our trail centre at Fineshade and Wakerley, so keep tuned to the rides & events page and our Facebook page for further information.

Sign up to our E-Bike Demo Day

Electric bikes are a common sight in European cities such as Amsterdam and Berlin, providing all the advantages of a regular bike, whilst reducing the strain on the body by giving you an assisted electronic boost. They're perfect if your ride or commute is just that little bit too long or hilly, or if you've got to carry a lot when you ride to and from where you need to be. You do still need to put some of the work in, but the battery power will give you a bit of a boost when you need it. They're also great if you're coming back from injury or struggle to ride longer distances, as they can allow you to cruise with ease, sail up hills, zoom to work or generally enjoy the pleasure that is riding a bike.

Most e-bikes have a number of different modes you can pedal in, which will change just how long the battery will last on your ride. The law in the UK restricts the power supplied by the motor in the bike to 25km/hour (roughly 15mph), so once you reach that speed you’ll have to put in the work if you want to go any faster!

E-Bike Motors

E-bikes predominantly use either a Yahama or a Bosch motor to power the ride, with both systems having their own strengths. There have been huge improvements in lithium battery technology in recent years, meaning this really is a new dawn for e-bike – so forget any preconception you’ve had from previous e-bikes.

Bosch motors are available in three different models and can be found on many Cube, Trek, Raleigh, Specialized and Scott bikes:

  • The Active Line has a 250W motor driving the cranks with 50Nm of torque
  • The Performance line offers an increased torque of 60Nm
  • The Performance CX has 75Nm of torque. Batteries across the board are 300-500W/h and all use Bosch’s Intuvia display and controller

Whilst, much of our Haibike range is powered by a Yamaha motor and battery unit. The Yamaha motor offers similar performance and configuration to the Bosch units and has a torque of 70nm powering the cranks, with an easy to use LCD controller.

Finally, select Raleigh models and Ebco bikes come with TransX motors and batteries. These drive the front wheel with a 36V, 240W motor and offer great value for money.
