We require all demo rides taken beyond our carpark demo to pay a 50% of the RRP value of the bike they are riding as a deposit. This can be taken via cash, card or bank transfer on the day of collection and is refunded on return of the bike.

In order to demo any of our EMTB’s for 1 day or longer, you will need to provide your passport or driving licence. This will be held in our company safe for the duration of your test ride alongside your signed demo bike form.

Your deposit refund will be processed at the point of return of the electric mountain bike. Please be aware it may take up to 5 working days for the transaction to clear back into your bank account.

If you are taking the bike on a 1 day or longer demo then you are welcome to ride it as you would your own bike. We expect the bikes to be used for what they are intended, off road mountain biking.

It is the rider's responsibility to provide and wear the correct protective gear for their demo ride. For carpark demo rides helmets will be available for you to use.

Pedals can be supplied FOC for all demos. If you have your own and would prefer these to be fitted this is no problem, please bring them along and our mechanics will fit them for you.

We kindly ask that you return our EMTB clean. Our team will carry out safety checks and give the bikes a thorough clean once a demo is finished but we appreciate it if you can make sure it has been rinsed down before return, you are welcome to use our hose at the front of the shop to do this.

We appreciate that traffic can be an issue for return or unexpected events can occur. A delay of return can be a maximum of 24 hours with good reason, anything beyond this will be charged at £60 per day unless otherwise arranged with our team.

As part of your handover you will be provided with the charger and instruction on how to use this so charging is not a problem.

Yes, all riders must be age 18 years or over.

Don’t worry. Riding an electric mountain bike is not dissimilar to a normal bike. Our team are here to help and a few laps of the carpark is normally enough to start to get the feel for it. We would always advise not to demo a bike if you have never ridden a bike before as electric mountain bikes are powerful and it is always best to have ridden a mechanical bike confidently first.
