Bike shops operating during pandemic

If the pandemic has inspired you to purchase a bike or make an old one roadworthy, you may be wondering where to turn. The good news is that many of Cambridge’s bike shops and repairers are staying open because they are an essential service while the UK tries to stay fit and healthy during the second coronavirus lockdown. 

Below is a list of some local bike shops which remain open. Note that hours or services may be limited, so it’s a good idea to telephone ahead with any queries about stock, services and physical distancing measures. Some of the bike shops are also using social media to update their status so it’s worth checking their Facebook, Instagram and Twitter profiles, too. We are doing our best to keep this list up-to-date. Please let us know if you spot anything we need to change.
