Riding around on a rusty old bike? That could be worth £500 off a new bike!

For a limited time we're very excited to announce the return of the Big Rutland Trade-In Scheme! Just bring your old bike into any of our stores and we'll give you a discount on a brand new 2018 bike - plus, your old bike will be donated to one of our community partners so not only do you get to ride away on a new two-wheeled machine, you can feel content in the fact that you're old bike is being put to good use.

Need some more information? Find the answer to some common questions below, get in touch with our Customer Services team via email, telephone or Live Chat, or head into your nearest store.

My bike isn't in very good condition - can I still qualify?

For our trade-in scheme, we'll accept bikes in any condition, rideable or not. We will accept any style of bike, regardless of the new one being purchased.

Which bikes are included in the offer?

Any bike at full retail price. Sale and clearance bikes do not qualify for this scheme, as they are already at market-leading prices.

How much will I get for my bike?

The amount you save depends on the price of your new bike. See the table above for more details.

Can I trade my bike in online?

Unfortunately this is an in-store offer only. We'd recommend contacting your nearest store to reserve your dream bike!

What will happen to my old bike?

Depending on the condition of your traded in bike, we will either donate it to a local community project, or scrap it, with any proceeds donated to our charity partners. This year, we will be donating bikes to three worthy causes:

Rutland County Council

Rutland County Council My Bike Project

Trade-in bikes bought into our Rutland stores will be donated to Rutland County Council's My Bike scheme where they will be reconditioned by the prisoners at HMP Stocken, before being offered to members of the community who don't have a bike of their own. The aim of the project is to help children, young people, adults and families into education, training, employment and recreation by giving them access to free sustainable transport.

Papworth Trust OWL Bikes

Papworth Trust OWL Bikes

Trade-in bikes bought into our Cambridge stores will be donated to the Papworth Trust's OWL Bike scheme who work with adults with disabilites and youth groups to refurbish donated bikes, which are then sold to the public to fund their ongoing work.

Nottingham Bike Works

Nottingham Bike Works

Trade-in bikes bought into our Nottingham Specialized Concept Store will be donated to Nottingham Bike Works, a not-for-profit Community Interest Company who use bikes as a way of engaging, educating and enriching the whole community, with the aim of getting people to ride bikes more often, and learning how to look after them too.

I've changed my mind - can I have my old bike back?

Unfortunately not. We are partnered with local community projects and once the sale is complete, bikes are then used by those projects.

Can I use my Cyclescheme certificate?

Unfortunately, Cyclescheme is excluded from our trade-in scheme.

Can I use finance?

Yes, you can obtain interest-bearing finance with the trade-in scheme. Interest-free credit is not available in conjunction with this offer.

Can I use more than one bike to generate a greater saving?

Please feel free to donate more than one bike; however, we will only be able to give you the same discount as if you supplied a single bike.

Can I use a kids' bike when buying a new adult bike?

You can (but permission of the child must be sought before donating their bike). We will accept any style of bike, regardless of the new one being purchased.

Can I trade in my bike for accessories or clothing?

Our trade-in scheme only applies to bikes, but additional products can be added to the same order.
