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.

The Campus Commute

Universities across the UK are looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint. From energy management solutions to environmental policies, it has to be said that our education institutions are far ahead of many businesses in the sustainability race. As part of the drive towards carbon neutrality, many universities are undergoing regular travel surveys to monitor staff and student travel patterns. The results of these surveys are used to develop strategies that encourage students towards the use of more sustainable modes of transport.

Using statistics from student travel surveys by twenty of the UK’s top universities, we have explored how cycling to university could help reduce the impact student travel has on the environment.

Are you a student? Read on to find out not only how you can reduce your carbon footprint, but how you can save money and get fit too.
