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?

    Postage costs for returns and exchange items

    If you wish to exchange an item, the quickest and simplest way to do this is to place a new order for the item you want and return the other item for a refund.

    At Rutland Cycling we offer free delivery on all orders over £20 within the UK.

    We do not offer free returns because we aim to keep the cost of the product as low as possible. Of course, if goods are found to be faulty, we will reimburse any cost incurred.

    If you would like to exchange an item, we will happily send out a replacement product free of charge of postage. In the rare event that you need to make further exchanges of the same order, we will add our return postage cost to your new invoice (currently £3.99 for small, low-value items, £5.99 for large packets and £15.00 for oversize/high value items including: car racks, video cameras, turbo trainers and wheels). We charge £20 for exchanging a bike.

    If you are returning an item for a refund, then we can only refund the original amount paid for the item, plus any initial shipping costs you may have incurred. We cannot refund your return postage for items where you have changed your mind about keeping them. If you are returning a large, heavy or high-value item, e.g. a bike, car rack, video camera, turbo trainer or wheelset, then please do contact us first, as we can often save you money on return postage by using our couriers. We charge a flat fee of £20 for bike collections in this instance.

    Received the wrong item?

    Believe it or not, we do make the occasional mistake! If we’ve sent you the wrong item, please accept our apologies. We’ll be happy to give you an refund/exchange, and refund your first class postage costs (up to a maximum of £10) for returning the item. You may send goods back to us using Priority or Guaranteed services, but we can only refund the approximate 1st class postage cost. If you are returning a large, heavy or high-value item, e.g. a bike, car rack, video camera, turbo trainer or wheelset, please contact us to arrange a collection (if you choose to post large items yourself, we can only offer a refund of up to £10).

    Please return the item to us within 30  days of receipt, enclosing your original proof of purchase (included with your order, or you can print out our order confirmation email), and a completed returns form. Goods must be complete, in pristine and resaleable condition, in their original packaging and must not be fitted or used. We recommend you obtain proof of postage, as we cannot be held responsible for goods lost or damaged in transit.

    Refunds and/or exchanges will be issued once the products have been received and inspected by Rutland Cycling.

    What if I want to exchange an item but no alternative is available?

    If we don’t have an alternative item in stock, then provided you’ve returned your unwanted item to us within 30 days, we’ll offer you a refund.

    International returns

    For international returns, please contact us first, so we can organise the most cost effective method: call +44 (0)1572 332 032 (lines open Mon-Fri, 9.30am-5pm UK time), or email enquiries@rutlandcycling.com.

    Custom Builds – our returns policy

    When we custom build or you custom order bikes, wheels or wheel sets, considerable time and care is taken to build an end product specifically for you. We hope you’ll be delighted with your new bike or wheels, but if you need to return your custom build, as a goodwill gesture we will accept it back (please note that we are not legally obliged to do this). We will, however, deduct the following charges from your refund/credit, which we hope you’ll agree are reasonable, to cover the time and effort taken in creating your custom build:

    • Custom built wheels and wheel sets: £15 per wheel
    • Custom built bikes: minimum charge of £100.

    Returning faulty, damaged or broken items

    All goods purchased from Rutland Cycling are coved by a full warranty. The duration of this warranty is at least 1 year from date of purchase, and some manufacturers offer extended warranty. Generally speaking, warranties cover manufacturing faults and defects but do not cover damage caused by crashing, abuse, general wear and tear, etc.

    Please note: we cannot accept any cycle warranty claim or return for incorrect pedal fitment or damage to crank arms caused by incorrect assembly. If the wheel on the bike you’ve ordered becomes untrue through use, it is not covered under warranty. We always recommend having your bike assembled by a professional; failure to do this may invalidate your warranty.

    If your faulty item is a previous year’s model and still under warranty, we may not be able to offer an exchange if the model has been discontinued or is unavailable. Should this situation arise, we will offer a repair a suitable alternative or a refund, provided the fault is covered under warranty.

    Step 1: If you feel that the product you have purchased from Rutland Cycling has developed a fault, then please email or call us on 01572 332 032 (lines open Mon-Fri, 9.30am-5pm) before returning goods, as many problems may be solved without you incurring postage costs.

    Step 2: If you need to return a faulty, damaged or broken product to us:

    • Please make sure it’s clean, and not covered in muck and oil.
    • Please wash all clothing items.
    • Please enclose your original proof of purchase and a completed returns form

    We recommend you obtain proof of postage, as we cannot be held responsible for goods lost or damaged in transit.

    We will refund up to £10 postage costs of returning faulty, damaged or broken items. You may send goods back to us using Priority or Guaranteed services but again we can only refund up to £10 postage costs. If you are returning a large or heavy item e.g. a car rack, please contact us to arrange a collection (if you choose to post large items yourself, we can only offer a refund of up to £10).

    If you live outside the UK, please email us with details of the item(s) you wish to return and we will contact you with the best way to return them.
