How do I arrange to hire a bike?

You can hire a bike using our booking form on this page.

If you live further afield and would like your bike sent to you, please contact Alpkit Metrocentre to arrange postage.

If you select to have your bike delivered, it will be fully prepared by our Sonder Technicians. All you'll
need to do is remove the packaging, attach the handlebars and the pedals (allen key required) then you're good to roll.

 We'll arrange for our courier to pick the bike up from you on a pre-arranged date - usually the day after your demo has ended.
Someone will need to be available to pass the bike over to the courier at the pre-agreed address from 8am until 6pm.

What if I decide to buy a bike after my demo ride?

If you fall in love with your bike and decide to buy one following your ride we'll refund the rental cost from the final amount.

Please note: the postage cost is not included in the refund amount

How will I receive my bike?

Collect your bike from your selected Alpkit store. You will be able to collect from 10am and return by 5pm.

If you live further afield, we can deliver your bike to your home and collect it at the end of your rental period for £99.

I need to cancel my booking, what is your policy?

We understand that sometimes you may need to cancel your booking. Please contact the store at least 24 hours before, and we’ll transfer your booking to another day (subject to availability).

Can I pay in cash?

As a condition of our insurance, we ask for all hires to be paid by credit or debit card.

What is the minimum age to hire your bikes?

The hirer must be a person aged 18 years or over. Evidence of age may be requested.

What equipment do I need to bring?

We recommend dressing appropriately, including footwear and helmets. For your safety, we require all customers to bring and wear their own helmets while using our bike rental service. Please note that it is your responsibility to ensure you have a helmet that fits properly and meets safety standards.

What about insurance?

You are responsible for the bike and yourself whilst in possession of the bike, and you are responsible for providing your own insurance protection whilst using the hire bike.
