Try Before You Bike

If you are considering cycling but are worried about riding on London's roads, or you simply cannot justify the spend on a new bike we have the perfect solution for you - Try Before You Bike.

No long-term financial commitment, just pay a month at a time until you own the bike or cancel at any point and nothing more to pay.

We deliver (and collect if need be) the bike and organise a cycle safety training package to suit your needs.

Wide range of bikes to suit all requirements including e-bikes. If a standard bicycle doesn’t meet your needs, please visit our Adapted-Bikes page

This project is currently open to people who live, work or study in the following boroughs: Kensington and Chelsea, Lambeth.



How it works 

    1. Note down your bike size using our Size Guide (please use cm for road/racer bikes).
    2. Use our filters to help you choose a new or nearly new bike that suits your needs (plus any accessories you might want).
    3. Make your first month's payment towards the bike and we deliver the new bike to your door.
    4. Get the most out of your bike and achieve your cycling goals with our cycle safety training package.
    5. Loving your bike? Continue making the monthly payment until it is you own it.
    6. Cycling not for you? Let us know and we collect the bike with nothing further to pay.
