Cycles UK has a collection of Electric Demo Bikes in stock purely for you to test ride! Short test rides are available on most bikes at our stores. If you want to get the feel for a bike we recommend a longer demo ride is the best way to help make up your mind.
Electric hybrids and mountain bikes are a common sight. A lot of road riders have been sceptical about electric road bikes. We believe the best way to understand the appeal of an electric road bike is to ride one. That’s why we have demo bikes available in all stores and across the company. Stores have bikes from size small through to x-large so we can cater for as many riders as possible. Here at Cycles UK, we understand that such a new technology needs to be tried first hand. Simple factors such as; can I get the bike up the stairs to my flat etc. These answers are critical to ensure you get the best service from us.
You can take an electric demo bike away for anything from half a day to a full weekend. So you can get a real sense of how they ride.
There is a charge for using the electric demo bikes which is usually around £50 to £60. The fee covers our costs to clean the bike when you bring it back, so it’s ready for the next demo rider. If you buy a bike from us following a demo ride, then we will refund the demo charge back to you.
All of our Electric demo bikes are based at our Braintree store in Essex. Our fleet of demo bikes changes so if you can’t see what you want below, get in touch with your local Cycles UK Shop.

The 2021 Specialized Turbo Creo SL is a new generation of electric road bikes. They are only a few KG heavier than a standard road bike but come with a motor that can double your power and a range of 80 miles, even without the optional range extender. Specialized has developed their own motor for the Turbo Creo SL which is designed to ride like a standard road bike so you don’t have to adjust your riding style, you just have more power.
