It has been an exceptionally challenging 12-18 months with Covid affecting us all, downsizing leading to burglaries, Brexit causing bike delays and trying to work in an ever-changing environment. This has really tested us.
However, there is a light at the end of this tunnel – We have finally had the lease through and will soon be able to start building the new Afan Valley Bike Shed!
Due to the increases in construction costs, we will have to take on far more of the build than when we posted last year. This means that we will need to scale back our operation over the next 6 months, and so the hire fleet will close on 29th September.
We plan to sell off as many of the hire fleet as we can and so want to get the bikes in tip-top shape ready for sale.
We will be reducing our hours but will continue to carry out repairs to those damaging their bikes and aim to keep you riding at least until the end of October.
Subject to how the build progresses, we will likely carry out mechanicals by appointment only through the winter and still have bikes and parts for sale.
We will update our social media as changes come into force.
We aim to have the new shop open for April/May 2022 and hope to show you all the new and improved services we’ll be able to offer then.
We’d like to say a huge “Thank You” to those who have supported us through the last year or so, and we look forward to welcoming you all back to a full service in the spring.
