Demo Day event          Demo group ride

Looking for a new bike this year but not sure what to buy?  The best way to decide is to try a few out, bit tricky deciding if a bike is right unless you have ridden it. 

We have a long list of 2018 bikes ready and waiting in the shop for you to take out whenever you want.  We are also having a Demo Day on Saturday 7th April when you can join a short group ride to try these bikes and more from the full range that we can order in especially for you.

The idea of our demo fleet is so you can get a feel for different styles of bikes, one bike will ride and handle completely different to the next.  A Propel road bike is an out and out speed machine that wants to go fast but take a ride on the Defy and you have the perfect set up for longer, comfier miles.

Borrow one of our demo bikes (list further down the page) for a couple of days and you can ride around your usual routes to get an idea of how the bike performs, fits and feels to give you the confidence you are buying the right bike for you.   If the bike you want to try isn’t shown below then get in touch and we can order it for you from Giant Test Ride.

Next Demo Day – Saturday 7th April

There will be three rides each lasting around 1 hour leaving at the following times:




For the Demo Day you can try a bike out on our group rides which will be led by one of our Giant Kendal team.  Different speeds will be catered for so don’t panic about being left behind while you are trying to get used to riding a new bike!  Have a go on the super speedy Propel, the endurance style sportive Defy or maybe the bike shop favourite TCR Advanced Pro Disc.  From the Liv women’s specific range the awesome Envie is always a winner, the popular Avail or the brand new for 2018 Langma.

We ask that you arrive 30mins before the start time so we can put pedals on the bike and set it up to your specification.  After the ride there is a chance to ask questions to the Giant Kendal shop team or your ride leader.  It wouldn’t be a proper ride if it didn’t finish with a cuppa and a piece of cake so  that will be ready and waiting for you back at the shop too.

This is a FREE event but spaces are limited so please get in touch to pre-book stating which time slot you would prefer and which bike you would like to try.  If the bike you want to demo isn’t on the list below then just let us know what you would like and we can order it direct from Giant Test Ride.  If you aren’t sure which bike might be right for you then give us a shout and we can have a chat to offer some advice and suggestions. 

To book on the event please email or give us a ring if you prefer to chat on 01539 728057.
