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.)

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.

Folding bikes - a helpful guide

Folding bikes: what are they like to ride?

On your way to the office, visiting friends or just making the most of limited storage space – sometimes you need a bike that can fold up to less than half its normal size. Folders have very small wheels and collapsible frames, making them convenient for storage in cupboards or under desks, as well as for carrying on trains or buses. Modern folders are tough and reliable, and ideal for commuting, but they’re not the most comfortable ride over long distances. There are a variety of styles available, from classic commuters to others that resemble hybrid or even mountain bikes.
