Test Rides

Shop spring 2019 006.JPG

We always have Bullitt, Riese & Muller, Xtracycle, Tern, & Cero bikes available to ride. We strongly encourage you to test ride before you buy and we make that easy. We work to keep floor models of each cargo bike we sell so you can see and ride each one. Our E-bike demos also make it easy to experience different models and e-assist systems so you can determine which you like best.

If you're coming to test ride cargo bikes we invite you to bring the whole family. If your kids are of helmet-wearing age they can join you on your test ride. We have car-free test ride areas right out our door and lots of helmets to loan too, including kid's helmets.

Bikes are available to test ride during all of our business hours so no need to make an appointment, just drop by and plan to try a bike or two or three.


Splendid Cycles offers a Bullitt cargo bike for rent. We do not have a fleet of bikes but offer this bike for rent for those needing to use a front loader for a day or two.

We have ONE rental* Bullitt so please plan in advance if you wish to reserve a bike.

The rental has a box with seating for two kids.

*Why Just One Rental Bike?

Well, the demand for rentals is not huge but mainly, we don't require you use a rental bike for an extended test ride. If you're selecting a bike for purchase, we call it a test ride. If you're borrowing the bike for an adventure or outing, that is a rental. We're happy to clarify if you have questions.
