90-Day UK Returns for all items

We want you to be 100% satisfied with your shopping experience at Rutland Cycling, so we offer a 90-day exchange or refund on any unused item (within the UK).

We've chosen to offer products at the very lowest prices, rather than provide a free returns service. If you do need to return an item, we provide printable postage labels and collection services at a small cost for all items - including bicycles.

See our full Returns policy.

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

    Cycling Clothing & Footwear Size Guide

       Words by Harry Archer

    Our clothing size guides below show you how to measure your body properly, to get the best fit.

    Web

    How do I choose the right size?

    1. Measure your body with a tape measure

    Top tips: Ask a friend to help – it tends to improve accuracy. Keep the tape measure snug but not tight.

    Chest

    Measure around the widest part of your chest/bust, holding the tape measure under your armpits.

    Waist and hips

    Men – measure around your waist, just above your hip bones (where your trousers naturally sit). Women – measure the smallest part of your waist / widest part of your hips.

    Inseam / inside leg

    With your shoes off, stand upright with your back against a wall. Place a book/ruler between your legs, level with your crotch. Then measure from the top of the book/ruler to your ankle bone for your inseam measurement, or to the floor for your inside leg length.

    Gloves

    Measure your dominant hand. Wrap the tape measure around your hand (but not your thumb), crossing the palm and passing below the knuckles. NB. Some brands measure your palm width, rather than palm circumference. If so, simply divide your measurement by two.

    Helmet

    Measure around the centre of your forehead just above your ears, crossing the bumpy bone at the back of your head (occipital bone).

    Foot length

    With your shoes and socks off, put your heel against a wall. Measure the distance from the wall to the furthest point of your foot.

    2. Find your size, using the tables below

    Remember, all sizing information is a guide only. If you have any questions about bike sizing, our expert team is here to help. Call us on 0330 555 0080, use our Live Chat, or email us.
