Customer Notice

Velo goodbye. After Boris’ address last night, we’ve decided that not only are we shutting the shop, but our bike delivery service is going to be put on hold for now. We’ve had a great response, so hopefully we can keep it going after all this calms down.
With regards for the shop, we’ve been holding our breath for days about what to do in this situation, but the decision is now not ours to make.
We value our staff and customers too much and think this is for the best.
We will be shutting the shop until further notice, but we have things in the works for when we return.

But for now: keep listening, keep reading and keep safe.
