Cycle loan scheme

Find out how you can borrow a bike through our Try Before You Bike scheme.

Try Before You Bike

Try Before You Bike is a user friendly scheme that is specifically designed to encourage people to cycle:

  • pay monthly for a bike (including hybrid, folding bikes, e-bikes, e-cargo bikes and adaptive bikes) with an easy to order process
  • free friendly delivery to your door with accessories (helmet, lights and lock), guidance and a bespoke training session of up to 2 hours
  • no deposit or hidden fees
  • affordable purchase options and Cycle To Work available
  • free collection if you decide the bike is not for you
  • support and encouragement given to help you get confident on the roads
