Corona Virus Operations Update
The shop door is now locked and we are in hibernation – stay at home DON’T come to Mikes Bikes.
Hello again, this is our Covid-19 Update from the 1st May 2020.
Bike shops are permitted to ‘open’ under the current 3 week lockdown period, but we do not think we should be ‘open’fully. Therefore we are operating in a zero social contact operation for the time being. It is important that we all stick to this other wise we risk locking down for longer with less freedom – don’t push the boundaries.
We are offering a limited bike shop service to keep you rolling and smiling. Below is what we can do without any social contact (note this may change daily but is current as of the 25th of APRIL) :
Bike Repairs – we have a limited* local bike repairs collection + delivery service going on, you must book this by email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will confirm your booking and turnaround time. (please note we are only able to service Electric Bikes that have been purchased from us at this time and priority on repairs will be given to bikes purchased from us and key workers.)
Local Delivery – available for most items in stock, pay us over the phone or by bank transfer. We are delivering items around the valley so whether its a new helmet or some chain oil, just email or use Facebook Messenger for stock information. We will then also advise on delivery times.
Bike Orders – we are still completing bike sales, just with out actually seeing you, Interest Free Finance is also still available. If you are interested in a new bike for your daily exercise then please email or contact us via Facebook messenger, we can then arrange phone calls to offer advice, private shop appointments and more. We also have a range of second hand bikes available, so again please email. We have a range of new bikes from £400 and if you’re in luck may have a second hand one in your size.
Local Delivery – non bike related items, we have a van and we can help you if you need anything – please just shout and we will try to help if we can.
Click and Collect Bike orders – you can click and collect from our main brands, pay online and select ‘local retailer’. We will then build the bike for you and can deliver within Badenoch & Strathspey at no extra cost, or out with the area for a small charge.
How to contact us? Email (email@example.com) or Facebook Messenger. Please replies to emails and messages may be slower, but don’t worry we will get back to you 🙂 Some of us are also working from home so please do not call the shop number, email or message us.
Stay safe, stay positive and stay healthy.
Thanks from all at Mikes Bikes
*limited – we only have one mechanic working at the moment, they each have their own specialities so we please be aware that not all jobs will be able to be completed at the moment.
(Please note it goes without saying that all bikes will be disinfected before drop offs, we will toot our horn to let you know that we have delivered – but don’t come out for a blether – it’s just not worth it. We are also operating with 1 member of staff, no staff are travelling to work at Mikes Bikes Aviemore)
