Test Rides

Try Before You Buy**

Interested in a bike you've seen on our website? Get in touch about scheduling a test ride to see if it's the right one for you.

At our Kensington shop, 1315 N Howard Street, we have three test ride slots available during opening hours: 10:30am, 12 noon, and 2:30pm*. You can test ride up to two bikes within a 30 minute time span. These test ride slots are for INDIVIDUALS ONLY. Call to schedule 215-425-4672.

At our South Philadelphia shop in the Bok Building, 821 Dudley Street, you can test ride a Brompton folding bike. Call 215-644-8124 for availability.

Want to try a cargo bike with the family? At our Kensington shop we can schedule you and your family for a test ride at 4pm, after we close.  Call to schedule 215-425-4672.

You must bring a current photo ID and current credit card for test rides. We do not have helmets to loan. If you want to wear one during your test ride you must bring your own or you can purchase one from us. Helmets are not required by law for people over 12 years of age.

Ready to buy? No problem. You can pay in full or leave a deposit, but give us a couple days to check over the bike. We want to make sure there aren't any issues after you get it home.

*We can fudge with these times a bit but please let us know in advance. If you're more than 15 minutes late for your appointment, we will consider it a "no-show" and may have to re-schedule. Call ahead if you think you'll be late.

**TEST RIDES ARE WEATHER PERMITTING (that means if there is snow or ice on the ground and/or substantial rain/snow falling, we will have to schedule your test ride for another day.)

**Most SE Bikes are NOT available for test rides.
