Free E-Bike Trials

Try before you buy; our E-bike trial scheme is back!

The best way to experience the pleasures and benefits of an electric bike is to take one home and use it over a week or two. Nothing beats the feel of that gentle ‘helping hand’ on the up-hills and the thrill of the ‘pull’ as you whizz away at the lights!

We offer free e-bike trials as we believe test rides can be a really important part of finding the right bike.

Once you return your loan bike and feel like taking the next step, we can help. Our shop stocks a variety of E-Bikes suitable for all different kinds of riding and we have various options to make buying easier.

Check out our selection of folding, hybrid and sporty city E-bikes.

Considering I got my bus pass a few years ago now, I’m loving being out cycling again! I couldn’t do the Arran hills without an ebike and I am delighted with it. My cousin has arthritis in her knees but has no pain with cycling the ebike, just using the battery on hills. …it means she can go out with her school age kids again. She loves the bike so much!


I’ve been for a trial commute to Giffnock on my new ebike today – fabulous run plus added bonus of coffee and cake at the Dandelion cafe with my pal! If you’re considering getting back in cycling, don’t hesitate – an ebike is brilliant fun! Thanks BikeTown for all your help 🙂
