Demo Bike Information
How do I book a demo bike?

Contact your nearest store, 7 days a week, to discuss your demo options. We'll advise you on the best models for you to try before you buy, and arrange the whole process so it's completely hassle free for you.

Find your nearest store.

To book a Brompton Test Ride contact our Peterborough store or Cambridge stores at Station, Barnwell Road or Grand Arcade.

How much notice do you need?

We recommend you book ahead, so we can ensure the exact model you're interested in is ready and waiting when you arrive. Please note that some demo bikes may need to be requested from another store or a supplier so the lead time to source your demo bike may vary.

Can I book your demo bikes as hire bikes?

Unfortunately Demo product is only for customers who are looking to purchase a new bike. We do however have an excellent fleet of hire bikes, which are available to rent 363 days a year.

What should I bring?

The following are essential - you won't be able to demo a bike without them:

  1. Photo ID (driving licence or passport). We'll keep your ID safe during your ride, and you can pick it up when you get back (if we're shipping a bike to you, we'll need a colour photocopy of your photo ID)
  2. Credit/debit card. For security reasons, we may ask for a deposit of up to the full price of the bike.

Please wear normal riding gear and appropriate footwear. We can provide flat pedals and a helmet, although you may prefer to bring your own. If you're using shoes with cleats, please bring along your own pedals.

What if I damage the bike?

If you damage a bike while you're demoing it, we'll repair it and charge you at cost.

What if the bike I want is already out on demo?

Our demo bikes go out on a first-come, first-served basis. If you want to demo a particular bike, we'll help you find a time to demo it when it's free.

Anything else?

Finally, please note that our shop staff reserve the right to refuse demo bikes at any time.
