We offer many wonderful types, brands and models of bicycles. One of the best ways to select the right one is taking test rides to feel how they differ from each other and from your current ride. In fact, most people feel that this is the best part of shopping for new bikes.
What To Wear And Bring While you're welcome to test ride our bicycles in street clothes, we recommend wearing athletic or rubber-soled shoes so that you'll be able to pedal and get on and off each bicycle comfortably.
For test riding the bikes, feel free to wear your riding shorts, jersey and shoes (you can suit up in our dressing room). This is the best way to compare new machines because it's what you're used to when you're riding your current bike.
Our Requirements We require a valid driver's license (with photo) and a major credit card in order to test ride. We'll put these in a safe place and return them when you finish riding.
If you don't have identification or a credit card with you, please don't ask about leaving other "valuables," such as your car keys, Rolex watch or Gucci loafers. We're sorry, but we can't take responsibility for personal items like this (and believe us, we've had some interesting offers over the years, such as the woman who offered her husband as collateral).
Also, for your safety, test rides aren't possible when the weather's bad or if it's dark.
Please tell us if you're unfamiliar with shifting and braking so we can demonstrate. Modern bicycles have improved considerably. It'll only take a few minutes for us to show you how the test-ride bicycle's shifters and brakes work. This little lesson guarantees you'll enjoy the test ride, while also helping you fully appreciate the bike should you decide to buy it.
If you have any questions at all about this or anything cycling, just ask. We look forward to showing you a great new bike sometime soon!
