Test Rides at Central E-Bikes

Why should you book a demo ride?

The wind in your hair, the sun on your face and the subtle smugness and wry smile as you pip through the middle of frustrated drivers stuck in traffic without any effort. Ah yes, we remember the feeling of our first e-bike, and we can’t wait for you to get the same level of satisfaction as we do every day.

All we require is a credit card, copy of your ID and a recent utility bill, and away you go.

Do I need to wear a helmet?

You must wear a helmet for Central e-Bikes to allow you to test ride one of our Specialized or Ridgeback e-bikes. We do not supply helmets, so please bring your own, or if you don’t own a helmet, there are plenty of great helmets at affordable prices in-store and online. As safety is of the utmost importance, if the bike isn’t fitted with a set of lights, we’ll fit a pair for you to test out, too. 

Current demo ride models available:

Where is good to ride?

In case you are not too sure of the area we have set up a map with a cycle route that will take in a bit of everything so you can really test the bike to its full potential, from a commuting route with cycle lanes, up to Hyde Park for a bit of greenery and of course some hills to really test the motors power. If you would like we can send it to you beforehand so you can have a check before you set off.

What else do I need to bring?

  • Your credit card for a refundable deposit once the bike is returned in its original condition
  • Your driving license or passport for us to scan
  • A recent utility bill or bank statement from the past 3-months

Please do not forget to wear suitable shoes (trust us, we’ve had people turn up in flip flops), a warm jacket and bring your helmet.
