Generally, our test ride routes range between _ to _ miles, and last about ___. But we’re happy to make accommodations along the way. We can make as many stops as you need, or, depending on your level of comfort on the road, we can walk the eBike to the park nearby to test it out there.
Yes, both our Brooklyn and Long Beach routes take you on roads with protected bike lanes, so you’ll never have to ride in traffic. However, if you’re not comfortable taking these routes, we also offer alternative options that include nearby parks and green spaces.
If you don’t have a helmet, we’re happy to provide one. The Sena [link to product page] is our preferred helmet for test rides because of its Bluetooth capabilities (and it looks cool, too).
It’s always a good idea to bring your own water bottle, and a small snack you can easily carry in your pocket or on the eBike.
Driver’s license, credit card, signed waiver
While helmet laws vary, to ensure your safety we do require that you wear a helmet during our test ride.
However, just so you’re informed, below are the helmet requirements for California and New York.
In California, if you’re 18 or older you don’t have to wear a helmet on a Class 1 or Class 2 eBike, however, you must wear a helmet while riding a Class 3 eBike.
In New York, riders ages 16-18 must wear a helmet while riding a Class 1 or Class 2 eBike, and helmets are required for anyone riding a Class 3 eBike.
During the pandemic, we require all customers (and staff) to wear a mask at all times.
It’s also important to wear closed-toed shoes. We recommend wearing clothes you feel comfortable exercising in, but the nice thing about eBikes is normal clothes are commonly used.
Of course all are welcome! We especially encourage bringing your kids if you’re looking to test out some cargo bikes and what’s better than going for a ride with a friend. You can bring them even if they’re not interested in buying an eBike. We’ll make sure it’s fun for everyone!
We may not have every eBike you want to test ride, but we can make accommodations using similar models so you can still get a feel for the eBike you have in mind. Don’t worry, whichever eBike you ride, we’ll make sure it’s a valuable experience.
We do have some eBikes available for immediate purchase, but many bikes will require building and testing before we hand them over. We also offer many delivery options so we can get you your bike safely and we can ensure that it goes through our build and QA process. Many of our bikes are built to order and we will be happy to clue you in on that process some more while you’re in the shop.
Absolutely, please schedule a service appointment here at least 5 days before your test ride.
