Test Rides

Try Before You Buy**

Interested in a bike you've seen on our website? See if it's the right one for you by scheduling a test ride.

Most bikes are located at our Kensington shop, 1315 N Howard Street, individuals can test ride any time during opening hours. This is for individuals only, for two people or more it may be better to schedule a test ride at 4pm. For more information call 215-425-4672.

At our South Philadelphia shop in the Bok Building, 821 Dudley Street, we only have a few Brompton folding bikes available to test ride. Call 215-644-8124 to schedule. For any other bike please call our Kensington shop (see above.)

Want to try a cargo bike with the family? Available only 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.

We require 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.

 If you're more than 15 minutes late for your appointment, we will consider it a "no-show" and will 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.
