Want to test ride an ebike? Here’s how.

If there’s one thing we can’t get enough of, it’s watching people try one of our electric bikes for the very first time.

Even if they were skeptical or had to be dragged to Rad Retail by a loved one, all doubt seems to melt away the moment they give it a try.

We’ve noticed that they can’t help but experience something we call the RadGrin. It’s that special smile that comes when they discover that, yes, ebikes really are as fun as everyone says.

If you’re ready to experience that for yourself, here are a few ways to arrange your very first ebike ride.

Take a free test ride.

“Great store with friendly and helpful staff. I'm also giving the bikes 5 stars. Go test ride one... It will change you forever!” - Jason W., verified rider.


When you visit our Rad Retail store in Vancouver, you can get to know our award-winning lineup of electric bikes with a free, hands-on test ride.

There’s no need for an appointment. Just stop by a Rad Retail or pop-up location, show an ID that shows you're of legal age, and our team can help you get started. 

They’ll walk you through the ins-and-outs of each model, show you how to safely operate the ebike, and then give you some one-on-one time with your potential new ride.

Take it for a 15 minute spin around our store. You’ll get a chance to experience your model in the real-world, just like it was your own.

If you’d like to try a different model, no sweat. You can test ride as many as you’d like.

Explore with a rental bike.

“During our winter vacation to the Gulf Coast, we rented a couple of Rad ebikes for a few days to see why they were becoming so popular. As the owner of the place we rented from said ‘they make bike riding fun again.’ We agreed and bought our two Rad bikes as soon as we returned home to Iowa.” - Ronald F., verified rider. 

If you’re not near one of our official locations, you can still enjoy some time in the saddle by visiting one of the hundreds of rental companies that carry Rad Power Bikes.

You can find these spots around some of the country’s best travel destinations, making it a great addition to any vacation or staycation.

Rental fees and model availability vary by location, so check your providers' website or give them a call if you’d like additional information. 

Enjoy a 14-day free trial.

“Since they had a 14-day return policy, I went ahead and ordered it. After the first ride, I knew I would not be returning it. I have ridden every day the weather has allowed since I’ve had it.” - Kirk G., verified rider.

We’re so confident that you’re going to love our ebikes that we offer a 14-day free trial.

Consider it an extended test ride. You have two weeks to try your preferred model and ride it up to 9 miles. If you don’t end up loving it, you can ship it back to us for a refund.

And if you decide to keep it, you can continue to ride confidently, thanks to our one-year warranty and lifetime access to product support.
