How to test cables??

I've only been reading this forum for a short while, but already my interest in testing cables (speaker and interconnects) has been awoken, I realise it's something of a contentious area but I'd like to do some investigation for myself, with a view to upgrading my current cabling.

What I would like to ask you is this: How does one go about borrowing cables to test? Do retailers have sets made up to lend out, or would I have to get them on some sort of sale or return agreement?

I really want to test bi-wiring against similar priced single speaker wire, I see this is a much debated topic.
