After the recent government guidelines of a necessary “lockdown” to control and help stem the spread of the Coronavirus we will be shut from normal day to day business.
It is true that bike shops are not under any instruction to close their doors but we feel that just having the lights on will draw people unnecessarily into the shop therefore not helping in the process to stem the tide of the virus. It was obviously not an easy decision as we enjoy being here and from a business perspective need to be here, we still have bills to pay etc also…. But some things are bigger than cycling.
This being said, we will operate an appointment only basis on EMERGENCY jobs only. What we are classing as emergency jobs are bicycles that are used as transport where it’s owner is on the key workers list. If you need to get to work, whether it’s teaching or NHS we will be able to help you. Contact us via Email, Facebook, or the two phone number supplied at the bottom on the page. We live 2 mins away so can get there quickly if need be. Needless to say, all the necessary precautions will be made during collection and working on the bicycle.
We will not be allowing people in the shop to purchase items other than those that may be going onto service jobs. Ideally payment can be made via BACS or over the phone prior to collection. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. We are currently working through our service work that was booked in. We will be in contact with you all, if we haven’t already, to let you know where we are with it and if you want it back before the re-opening of the shop.
We will try and keep everyone updated as to what we plan on doing next and when we may be re-opening via Facebook, so keep an eye out.
Finally, please everyone look after yourself. The better we adhere to these rules the quicker we stop the spread of this horrible disease and the quicker we get back to normal yapping about bikes over a coffee!
