The government has recognised bike shops as an essential shop that can remain open. We are operating a reduced set of opening times 11am-4pm Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and prioritising bike repairs.

Government guidelines have listed Bike shops as an essential service during the current restrictions of movement across the U.K.
In addition to our maintenance services we will continue to offer limited retail access for those urgently in need of bikes for transport.
Due to the new restrictions our process for bike sales has changed:
- All enquiries must first be made by phone or email - please do not visit the shop unannounced.
- If you need to visit our shop please do not come in groups greater than 2 adults and please observe government rules on group sizes.
- Please maintain a distance of 2 meters from staff and any other customers at all times.
- Unfortunately bringing children to the shop is advised against unless absolutely necessary.
- If you do bring children to the shop please ensure they are kept with you so that social distancing can be maintained at all times.
- Test Rides will be conducted in accordance with our current COVID-19 measures.
- Please understand that in some cases we may not be able to fulfil orders until after restrictions are lifted.
We hope that these precautions don’t impede your ability to access our bike shop during this time.
Please get in touch if you have any questions.
