To All Our Valued Customers

The government's most recent advice amounts to a UK wide lock down of people and most businesses. There is, however, specific parts of the retail sector that can continue to trade, as they are classed as "essential services" and bikes stores fall into this category.

The health & safety of our staff and customers are our highest priority, however we also realise that cycling indoors on trainers and outdoors in the clean fresh air is being encouraged by the government as it brings in significant benefits to our health and mental wellbeing in these extraordinary times. We also understand that many essential workers may well be commuting to work by bicycle and may need servicing or repair services to continue to do so.

After much consideration and considering all aspects of current government advice, we have decided to dramatically change our trading policy with immediate effect.


Our independent store on Team Valley, Gateshead will firstly change it hours and days of operation.

Monday: 9am - 4pm

Tuesday: 9am - 4pm

Wednesday: 9am - 4pm

Thursday: 9am - 4pm

Friday: 9am - 4pm

Saturday: 9am - 4pm

Sunday: CLOSED

Our doors will be locked and not open for casual unplanned, non-essential visits. We ask all customers to carefully consider if their cycle needs are important and if so, you can come down to our shop, where we will be allowing two separate customers in the shop at any time, so that our retail space will be isolated and dedicated to a very few individual visitors. Please knock on the door to be let in. If we already have two people in, we will get to you as soon as possible. This way we can fully control our environment and ensure we comply to the government guidelines in full, but at the same time, still offer a much restricted, but very important service for those who need it.

We have introduced increased sanitation measures within store to ensure any visitors and staff are protected. All visitors will be required to use hand sanitiser on entry. All common surfaces are being regularly cleaned and sanitised. We will follow all government guidelines in this regard.

I’m sure you will appreciate the consideration that has gone into this decision and place some value on the bespoke scaled down, specialist service being offered. We will keep you updated of any changes to this policy as and when they occur.

Stay safe & healthy
