In light of the Coronavirus pandemic and subsequent government legislation, please be aware our shop opening hours are restricted as per the updated opening hours on our homepage. We do however still welcome your sales enquires, service jobs and any other cycling related queries.
Cotswold Cycles has reviewed and reflected on the Government announcement and guidance of March 23rd. The Government guidance includes Bike Shops in the essential group of retail business that are not being asked to close at this time. Link to this guidance is below.
We therefore are planning to continue operating the shop
We will be running with less staff in the shop as we have some staff members who have underlying health conditions who will be supporting the business remotely from their homes.
We ask our customers
We are committed to the health and wellbeing of our staff and customers and will review best practice regularly, daily if necessary. We are vigorously implementing the highest standards we practically can of transmission prevention in the store including for instance regular cleaning of all frequent hand-touch points such as the PDQ (Card payment) machines and the counter area. Our staff will observe the 2 metre distance rule from customers and colleagues. Hand washing facilities are available and all our staff are committed to regular hand washing. You can be assured of a warm welcome as ever when you enter the shop but we ask you to respect our policy of no shaking of hands or physical contact.
These are very challenging times for all of us. We are committed to rallying together with our customers and suppliers to face down these challenges.
In the meantime, keeping fit and active is something you can do safely and within the guidelines for social distancing. There are few more rewarding ways of doing that than cycling so keep pedalling, keep safe and we look forward to seeing you soon.
