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.

Scooters - a helpful guide

   Words by Aaron Scott

Scooters: what are they like to ride?

Slim, lightweight and highly manoeuvrable, scooters are easy to ride on the flat, and are a great way to give yourself a workout on the way to work. There are no special skills to learn, no dedicated gear to buy, but their small wheels make them unsuitable for off-road riding – even badly broken pavements can be a hindrance. They can be brilliant for completing the daily commute, since they fold up for carrying on public transport and it’s legal to ride them on the pavement. If you manage to build up a bit of speed, there’s usually a footbrake over the rear wheel to help you slow down. They’re also a great way to introduce kids safely to roadcraft and responsibility, and improve their balance skills and coordination.

Stunt scooters are designed for performing tricks. They tend to be sturdier and heavier than standard scooters and they don’t fold up.
