Shop open to support key workers

Our shop is still open for servicing, repairs & refurbished bikes sales from 10am – 6pm Monday to Friday. All community programmes are suspended. Whilst many non-essential shops are to close, Bike Shops are to remain open.

We’ve thought hard about whether this is the right thing to do in light of govt advice to stay home & minimise the risk of contagion. On balance, we feel as though the measures we have in place (one customer at a time, reduced staffing, frequent sanitising) are enough to make it a relatively safe environment.

We’re also conscious of the need for key workers to travel by bike, even when many others are at home. We want to help them if we can…

So we’re offering a 20% discount to all key workers on everything (repairs, servicing, parts, accessories). This work will be top priority for our shop mechanics!

Watch this space. Things may change of course. But as long as we feel we can be useful & not compound the problems, we’ll carry on.

Peace & grease, BBP 🤘🏼

Please note we are not accepting donations of bikes or parts at this time, but if you can donate some money to help us keep others rolling, we’d really appreciate that! bit.ly/BBPdonate
