BUSINESS AS NORMAL(ish) COVID-19 Update

Back in the Saddle Again…

We’ve always been a service shop first. Well, guess what… it’s game on!!

With Governor Whitmer’s recent update to the “shelter-in-place” order – and most specifically Order #10, Item (b) – bicycle repair has been deemed an “essential service.” We always knew it was!

Still having to follow the social distancing and CDC guidelines, we’re going to do a soft reopening, experimenting with a few new procedures, so please bear with us as we figure this out.

We’ve been here for you in the past. We’re here for you now.

SHOP HOURS
MON & THU-SUN 10am-5pm
Closed TUE & WED

SERVICE SHOP
Our service shop is fully operational beginning THIS MONDAY, April 27. We can handle all of your service needs, including tune-ups and repairs. BUSINESS AS NORMAL.

RETAIL SHOP
Our retail shop is accessible via phone ordering, curbside pick-up, and delivery. Our mission is to keep you safe.

We’d like to thank the League of Michigan Bicyclists for their efforts and their advocacy on behalf of all bicycle shops and cyclists. Special thanks also goes to Jeff Buerman, our QBP rep, for keeping everyone in the loop; he definitely went above and beyond.

A little celebration: This was the song that popped into Shaun’s head when he heard the update…

Emergency Bike Repair UPDATE

In the past 3 weeks of offering free emergency bicycle repair, we worked on 105 bicycles that would otherwise have been unrideable. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to keep you rolling! 


GoFundMe: We Still Need YOU

We’re not in the clear yet! Although the April 24th Executive Order update gives us an opportunity to generate income going forward, resources continue to be limited.

With this change, we are thankful to be able to lower our ask. But because of the ongoing uncertainty, we are still looking for your support:
