Latest from C2K - Updated 16th August

Latest from C2K - Updated 16th August

We have had a challenging but very interesting time in both shops over the past few months. Working in a way that keeps everyone safe during the COVID crisis has been a challenge and continues to be our priority whilst at the same time trying to keep up with demand for new bikes, servicing and accesories.

Our online booking system for both sales and servicing has worked very well and we have supplied and serviced more bikes than ever before. Whilst social distancing and face covering requirments continue, we will be continuing with our booking system for the foreseable future. To book a sales or service appointment visit www.cycling2000.co.uk/booking

For those customers who are just looking for accessories, booking a sales appointment may not always be required as we can often deal with those sales at the door.

Stock Availability. We do have stock of all bikes arrivng all the time so dont give up if you are looking for a new bike, please get in touch. Numbers of new bikes are very limited and will continue to be that way until early 2021 but we have strong relationships with Cannondale, GT, Scott and Forme who are supporting us well and we are managing to continue to source stock of new bikes including brand new 2021 models that start to arrive from August.

New Telephone System. In addition to our new online booking system we have invested in a brand new telephone system to make us easier to contact and improve our efficiency in these difficult times.

New Products. Although availability is limited we do still have new products arriving such as the brand new Garmin 130 and 1030 plus brand new e-bikes from Forme, 2021 models from Cannondale and Scott plus new turbo trainers from Elite.


COVID-19 Shop Update 8th June

COVID-19 Shop Update 8th June

We now have new procedures in place to allow us to “reopen” both Lichfield and Burton stores. To meet all the safety guidelines for retail, there will be a number of important changes to the way we operate. The most important being guidelines for staff and customers when you are in the stores and our new appointment system that we are operating for both sales and service, please read all the details below for information and how to book an appointment.

New opening hours for both shops are as follows:

  • Tuesday 9am – 5pm
  • Wednesday 9am – 5:30pm
  • Thursday 9am – 5.30pm
  • Friday 9am – 5:30pm
  • Saturday 9am – 5:30pm
  • Sunday and Monday – closed

In Store Sales As both shops have limited space we can only allow one customer (or a couple / family from the same household) in at anytime. We will be operating the 2m social distancing and will politely ask that you avoid touching products where possible. Please pay by card where possible and do not visit if you or any member of your household have symptoms or have been asked to self isolate.

We ask that all customers who wish to view bikes and higher value items that will require more time, to make an appointment before you visit. All customers with a pre booked appointment will be given priority. We will try and help any other customers by serving at the door where possible. To book a sales appointment please click the “Read More” link below

Online Sales You can also continue to buy products here online. As availability of new bikes in the UK continues to be very limited, stock may not appear on the website but may be available in store. We are managing to continue to source stock of a good range of bikes.

Service and repairs We ask all customers to pre book an appointment to drop off their bike for service / repair and this can also now be done online. We can’t accept any bikes without a pre booked appointment. Service information / pricing and appointments can be made by visiting www.cycling2000.co.uk/service or clicking the “Read More” link below.

Bike and Saddle fitting In the short term, to ensure everyone’s safety we cannot unfortunately offer these services.

We apologise in advance that we can’t offer any drinks or sit and chat as we have done in the past, but hope that our new way of trading will work well for everyone. Please note that the procedures set out above is how we expect to be operating for the foreseeable future but will continually review our procedures and policies.

Contact Us Due to limited staffing we currently cannot take any telephone calls at either shop. All appointments can be made by clicking the “Read More” link below and for any general enquires please email info@cycling2000.co.uk

Than you for your continued support.

Online Booking System Now Live - 2nd June

Online Booking System Now Live - 2nd June

Latest from C2K – I am sure from the outside looking in, it looks like bike shops are having a roaring time. We are working really hard behind the scenes to try to make all of our working practices more efficient and easy for all concerned. We are constantly changing and adapting to government advice and customer feedback and we really do understand that having no phone calls answered is frustrating but the great news is that we are waiting for a whole new phone system to be installed to get us back to some sort of ‘normal’ and your phone calls answered as soon as possible. As our priority continues to be the safety of our team and customers, both sales and service requests will continue on an appointment only basis for the time being with strict social distancing when customers do visit the stores. Like most businesses we are experiencing limited stock levels of all makes, models and types of bikes and this remains our biggest challenge.

We are still working hard sourcing as many new bikes as possible from our suppliers as the recent demand has left the UK with little stock of every model. We do currently have bikes in stock with more arriving soon, but please, be patient. We are pleased to announce our brand new online booking system for servicing and repairs is now live and can be found here. We will keep you updated on new developments as they happen.

The procedure currently for initial sales enquiries remains the same, please email us at info@cycling2000.co.uk for both Lichfield and Burton and we will be continually updating the website and Facebook with availability of new bikes”


Latest News - 22nd May

Latest News - 22nd May

Latest from C2K – The past few weeks have been challenging for everyone. Thanks to the patience of all of our customers we have managed to service and repair a large number of bikes and at the same time build and supply more new bikes than ever before. With limited staff it’s not been easy but great to be able to help out so many people and see so many more riding away on brand new bikes. As our priority continues to be the safety of our team and customers, both sales and service requests will continue on an appointment only basis for the time being with strict social distancing when customers do visit the stores. Like most businesses we have also seen a huge increase in online orders and we are shipping product as quickly as we can.

We are working hard sourcing as many new bikes as possible from our suppliers as the recent demand has left the UK with limited stock of key models. We do currently have bikes in stock with more arriving. We are also working on a brand new online booking system for servicing and repairs and new procedures in store to enable us to sell and service even more bikes from early June. More details soon.

The procedure currently for sales and service appointments remains the same, please email us at info@cycling2000.co.uk for both Lichfield and Burton and we will be continually updating the website and Facebook with availability of new bikes”


COVID-19 - Shop Update 17th April

COVID-19 - Shop Update 17th April

Firstly we would like to thank all our customers for the continued support, it is very much appreciated.

We are committed to continuing to help customers purchase bikes and provide servicing in our workshops in both Burton and Lichfield, however in order to do this efficiently and help as many people as possible we have to make some small changes. Below are the ways we will be able to help going forward. As always we will continually review and adapt where neccessary.

On-Line Sales – We have a large range of bikes and accessories available to purchase on this website. Demand for specific bikes has been very high so deliveries are taking longer than usual and various models are now out of stock. We do have stock of Childrens bikes, Full Suspension MTB, Road bikes and E-bikes plus a limited range of some Hybrid models.

Servicing – Our workshops are still open and demand for servicing is very high. We are working with limited staff at this time and therefore servicing bikes quickly is our biggest challenge. We have a backlog of jobs that we are working through but we are still taking bookings for new jobs. All new service work must have a pre booked appointment. To book your bike in for a service please email us info@cycling2000.co.uk. Our next availability for new jobs is currently 10-14 days.

In-Store Sales – It is still possible to purchase bikes in store but this also can only be with an appointment using the same email address.

In order to allow us to work efficiently and help as many people as possible we are asking customers to not telephone the shops or arrive without an appointment. All service and sales appointments can be made by emailing info@cycling2000.co.uk

Stay safe and thankyou for your continued support and understanding.


COVID-19 - Shop Update 30th March

COVID-19 - Shop Update 30th March

As the situation continues to evolve we have taken the very difficult decision to temporarily close both shops in Lichfield and Burton. Our priorty has always been the safety of our customers and staff and we have tried to remain open over the last few days. However now is the right time to do everything we possibly can to keep staff and customers safe.

In the mean time until we are able to reopen, for those customers with “Key Worker” status we will continue to help wherever we can with essential servicing and purchases. If you need help please email us at info@cycling2000.co.uk and we will do whatever we can to help.

Our other focus now for the coming weeks will be our on-line business for people wanting to purchase bikes, and we are adding more products every day. All bikes can be ordered on-line and delivered direct to your door. You can still apply for Finance on line although Click and Collect will not be available during this time.

We hope you understand the decision we have made and look forward to seeing you all when we are able to reopen.


COVID-19 - Shop Update 28th March

COVID-19 - Shop Update 28th March

Both shops remain open with various restrictions, however as travel is now restricted to essential journeys only to get to work or food shopping, both shops continue to remain available to support key workers. Both shops will be closed on Sunday and Monday for the next few weeks although this will be reviewed each week. On-line purchases via our web-site continue to be available to all. We stock a huge range of bikes, parts and components but not everything is on the website. If you cant find the bike you are looking for drop us an email or give us a call and we will add it so it can be purchased. Delivery times will vary and difficult to predict given the current challenges.

COVID 19 - Shop Update 24th March

COVID 19 - Shop Update 24th March

Since our last update we have now had time to read and digest the information issued by the government last night.

There are now very strict instructions for people not to travel and only shop for the every essential items. Along with a number of essential shops, bike shops are allowed to stay open, at least for now.

Based on this we have decided to revert back to the decision we made yesterday morning which is to remain open but with a strict “Closed Door” policy in both Lichfield and Burton. This will enable us to continue to complete bikes we currently have in the workshop and also prepare new bikes that have already been ordered so that they can be collected.

Following Government guidelines we have decided to stay “open” in order to continue to offer sales and servicing support to those people that consider their bike to be essential transport for their work, however we will be reviewing this daily.

If you need to visit either Lichfield or Burton shop to have a bike repaired or make a purchase please first ask youself if it absolutely essential or could be avoided. We are staying open for now to help those who really need it but encourage everybody to stay at home. Only 1 person will be allowed in the shops at any time and where possible we will deal with your enquiry outside.

As we have seen in the last 48 hours the advice can change quickly and we will be constantly reviewing our own policy to ensure all of our staff and customers are safe. Please take all the advice very seriously so that essential services and shops can remain open.


COVID 19 - Shop Update 23rd March 2020

COVID 19 - Shop Update 23rd March 2020

Following the latest strict instructions issued by the Government this evening, both Burton and Lichfield stores will close with immediate effect until further notice. Our website and on-line purchases (with the exception of “Click and Collect”) will continue to be available.

We currently have a number of customer bikes in our service department, we will make contact with each customer directly to discuss the options available.

We also have a number of sold bikes that customers are expecting to collect over the next week or so, again we will be in touch directly with those customers to discuss how they can be collected.

At this stage we are not able to take bikes in for service and repair.

Whilst both shops are closed please use info@cycling2000.co.uk to get in touch if you have any questions or queries.
