Morning all, what a roller coaster, it now turns out that cycle shops are allowed to stay open. So we will be open later this morning once we have implemented some changes. We are going to put a counter across the door and do a pick up/drop off service. This is to ensure the safety of our team and our customers. We are allowed to stay open as long as we adhere to social distancing guidelines so please keep 2 metres apart at all times.

Please remember we are a click and collect site for Giant/Liv bicycles so if you would prefer to shop online and collect (or we can deliver after hours) please visit their website.

Please share as much as possible.

[03/23/20]   We are open... But can we politely ask you to follow social distancing guidelines.

For your peace of mind...

We are wiping down the card machine and counter with milton inbetween customers.

We are sterilising money before it goes into the till and all existing money has been sterilised.

We are trying to limit customer contact to myself and I am taking my temperature every morning.

We have anti bac wipes on the counter and will provide hand sanitizer as soon as we can get hold of some.

If you are self-isolating we will deliver after we close at 5:30.

Thankyou, Liz

Some multinationals aren't taking cash....we are literally laundering money...in milton! 🤣🤣

[03/19/20]   Morning all,
I hope everyone is bearing up ok. Just to let you know we are now down to skeleton staff as a few of our team are self isolating as they are vulnerable. It is pretty quiet so it shouldn't be a problem but can we ask you to be patient. On the plus side Matt is at home with his feet up, ready to respond to any FB messages and order requests. He has access and knowledge of our stock, prices, and is a total car guru so please feel free so use his knowledge, order and we will deliver after we close or you can pick up. Just message to our FB page.
Stay safe Liz x

[03/17/20]   Weird times...
Just to let you know, we will be keeping the shop open for the duration as long as our team are healthy. Just for your peace of mind we are constantly wiping down surfaces, card machines etc and have anti bac wipes on the counter for customers to use if they want extra reassurance. If you are self isolating and require any of our products, please ring and we will do our best to accommodate you.
Stay safe, and look after each other. ❤
