Try Before You Buy

This is a great opportunity to get to grips with a new model bike on leading MTB trails, helping you decide if it’s really the right bike for you

Call us now on Cyclewise Whinlatter 017687 78711 to book a ride on one of our demo bikes.

Or complete the booking request form below.



Here at Cyclewise Whinlatter we have demo bikes available from top brands: Mondraker, Cube, Yeti and Evil Bikes, all available to test ride on the singletracks of Whinlatter Forest right on our door step. Our demo fleet includes full suspension, hardtail, e-bikes (electric bikes) and road bikes*.

We offer a unique demo experience that allows you to hire one, or a selection of, demo bikes to ride on one of UK’s leading mountain bike trails: Altura Trial or Quercus Trail.

Our TRY BEFORE YOU BUY is the perfect way to help you make your final decision. Pre-booking is highly recommended, especially at the weekend or during the school holidays.

Demo bikes are charged at £50 for a full day (Yeti and Evil are charged at £80 for a full day), which is redeemable if you purchase a new bike from us within six months of the demo. You can try more than one bike during the day, but can only take out one bike at a time.

Currently we have the following available for demo. Please contact us on 017687 78711 for an up-to-date availability list before travelling:
