at Hazard's Cyclesport
Test riding a bike is the best way to determine if it’s right for you that’s why we keep rentals available year-round, so you can find out firsthand how our bikes ride and quiz our expertly trained staff with any questions you have about sizing, build options, or whatever else is on your mind.
If you’re considering a new bicycle, a new style of riding, or even a new saddle, the best way to find the perfect equipment is to put it to the test at your favorite route. At Hazard's Cyclesport, we highly recommend taking advantage of our demo program so that you can try before you buy.
WHAT TO BRING
At Hazard's Cyclesport, all rental bikes come stocked with flat or Shimano pedals. If you prefer to use your own pedals, bring them by and we will be happy to install them for you.
Be sure to bring your own helmet. All demo riders MUST wear a helmet!

REQUEST TO RENT A BIKE AT HAZARD'S CYCLESPORT BELOW
CAN I LEAVE MY CAR PARKED AT THE SHOP?
We share a parking lot with other businesses and the lot is not very large. We suggest finding alternative parking.
HOW DO I TRANSPORT THE BIKE?
With suitable tray-style racks or a pickup truck you may transport the bike elsewhere to ride. We double-check your setup to make sure it can bear the weight and won’t damage the bikes. We prefer that bikes aren’t transported inside of a vehicle, but if you must, we only allow one bike to be transported that way.
WHY DIDN'T I RECEIVE A CONFIRMATION EMAIL?
We find our confirmation email often goes to the spam folder. If you still cannot see a confirmation email for your booking please feel free to call us at (805) 979-4429
CAN I DEMO A BIKE FOR WEEKLY GROUP RIDES?
Absolutely. To do so create a booking as normal and then call to confirm the logistics of the group ride to get you set up.
WHAT DOES THE DAMAGE COVERAGE TAKE CARE OF?
The optional $20 insurance covers any damage on the bike up to $250 plus it waves all labor fees associated with the repair. In the event that the cost to fix the bike is more than $250, then the damage coverage knocks $250 off the total price of repair.
CAN HAZARD'S CYCLESPORT TRACK DOWN BIKES FOR PURCHASE?
Yes we can! If you’re unsure where to start or don’t already have a shop you’re working with we are happy to track down inventory and help you find any bike.
WHAT IS INCLUDED WITH EACH DEMO?
We have a limited supply of shoes, pedals, and helmets that we can provide with your demo. For pedals and shoes we have both flat and SPD styles. While we do have helmets here to provide, we encourage you to bring your own if possible due to limited supply.
DEMO TERMS & CANCELLATION POLICY
We require a credit card to be placed on file in order to book your reservation, and you will be charged in full at the time of your demo. We require at least 48 hours notice for all cancellations - any cancellations within 48 hours of your reservation will result in a fee of 20% of your total demo cost, automatically charged to your card on file.
LATE DEMO RETURNS
Any demo bikes returned after the completion of your demo time will result in a late-fee of $25 per bike, automatically charged to your card on file.
We offer a $20 damage policy covering up to $250 in bike damage. Anything beyond that, or any amount of damage if you decline coverage, is the responsibility of the rider and must be paid in full upon return of the demo bike.
