ESCAPE – EXPLORE – ADVENTURE

We wanted to reassure all of our customers that we are open for business and our sales department is operating at full speed, whilst operating to the highest standards of social distancing and hygiene. During the Covid-19 crisis we are receiving a truly unprecedented volume of enquiries.  We are all working flat out to get back to everyone as soon as possible, but please accept our apologies if there is a short delay before we are able to reply fully to your enquiry.
We normally operate on an appointment basis for physical sales visits, but for now and concentrating entirely on remote selling, from initial enquiry right through to home delivery or safe outdoor collection. Our remote selling processes are very well established and the bottom line is that whether you visit us or not, you will receive the same market leading levels of customer service, personal attention and expert advice, whatever your budget – as well as our unbeatable every day low prices.
Due to supply issues on a large number of smaller individual components, parts and accessories, we are temporarily unable to offer any fully custom bikes that are built from bare framesets, and are limiting the customisations we can offer to factory built bikes to wheelset upgrades and tyre swaps. Due to exceptionally high levels of demand and the extra admin involved, we are currently unable to accept any new orders using the Cycle to Work scheme. Existing Cycle to Work orders will of course be fulfilled as normal.
