Welcome to the C2K latest news and events page. You will find all our latest news including new stock arrivals, in-store and on-line promotions, new services and facilities we have added in the shop such as the new workshop and bike fit area and much more. You can also continue to keep up to date with what’s happening on our Facebook page.
The Events section below will have details of all the events we will be running for our customers and taking part in ourselves throughout the year, from new product launches, demo events, service courses and shop rides.
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 email@example.com 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
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
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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org to get in touch if you have any questions or queries.
