Covid-19 update, operating to the ‘new normal’

We are now getting back to the ‘new normal’ way of operating with Covid-19 protection measures. Based on government guidelines, we have installed ‘sneeze screens’, marked 2m zones in the shop and introduced a frequent disinfecting regime with antibacterial sprays, wipes and hand sanitizer available for customers use.   We also appreciate your continued support of our ‘one in / one out’ policy for customers and respect for 2m social distancing.

We continue to work through the backlog and overload of bike servicing and are currently working on an average of 5 days turnaround for servicing. Our door opening hours for collection, drop off and urgent purchases for the foreseeable future will be:

  • Monday – by Appointment only
  • Tuesday – 09:00-17:30
  • Wednesday – 09:00-17:30
  • Thursday – 09:00-17:30
  • Friday – 09:00-17:30
  • Saturday – 09:00-16:00
  • Sunday – 10:00-14:00

How else can we help in the current climate with the Coronavirus? 

There may not be much a local bike shop can do to help in the current Corona situation but getting out on your bike could be welcoming exercise for those who are social distancing and a sensible alternative to traveling on public transport. Below are a few points from us where we can help you and you can help us.

  • Let us collect and deliver your bike when it needs servicing
  • Bikes are usually contaminated with all kinds of things but especially sweat, blood and tears. Please help us by hosing and wiping down your bike before we start to work on it.
  • Bar tape and grips are home to all kinds of bacteria and germs. Pro riders change their bar tape every day in the Tour De France to avoid becoming ill. Let us change your bar tape for as little as £10 (plus tape) or for free during a full service.
  • All of our technicians wear gloves and we have a good supply of hand washes and gels, customers are welcome to use these when in the shop.
  • If you do need to visit the shop but are trying to avoid crowds, just give us a call and make an appointment, we can do this out of hours too if you want some time to look over that new bike you’re dreaming of.
  • All of the bikes we have in stock are on our online shop, we update this daily, buy online and we’ll build and deliver it locally for free.

We will do our best to keep you cycling during this concerning time.
