- Shipping & Returns
Shipping & Returns
Free when you spend over £49.99 in a single order, otherwise it's typically £4.99 per order. Delivery should be expected between 2-3 working days unless stated on product page or we inform you of a delay
Delivery Of Bikes
We ship all of our bikes Free Of Charge within the United Kingdom (excl. Jersey and the Channel Islands at this time) and all of our bikes come pre-assembled, with just a few tweaks required. (Please see our bike assembly guide page for details of assembly required).
All of our bikes undergo a safety check before being re-boxed for shipping which can, during busy periods, take a little longer to complete. So whilst we aim to ship all of our bikes within two working days of the order, please allow for additional time for this process.
All our consignments irrespective of the carrier require a signature upon delivery. Deliveries are typically made between 08:00 and 18:00, so please bare this in mind when choosing a delivery address.

Unfortunatley sometimes mistakes happen. If something does go wrong we want you to know that Cowley Cycles will get it sorted quickly.

Where possible we do try to reuse packaging from our own suppliers in order to send purchased items to our customers. We ask if the packaging is still in good condition after you've received your goods, then please try to use it again or recycle it yourself.
