CORVID-19 Precautions

March 20, 2020 Jeremy 0

Speed of Bike will continue to operate during the current coronavirus situation under the following conditions: social distancing of at least 1.5 metres will be maintained, no more than one person on the property at any time, no members of the public will be allowed in the workshop, all transactions will be electronic (either through bank transfer or EFTPOS – no cash) and no immediate/rush jobs will be undertaken. On that last point, small jobs like replacing tubes and brake pads will be taken in overnight so as to limit the amount of face-to-face exposure. Please understand that Speed of Bike operates from a private residence, and in order to prevent unnecessary contact we are enacting strict measures to protect ourselves. If a customer is unable to respect our measures they are welcome to take their bike elsewhere, and we will provide recommendations.
