What a year that was.

So there it was 2020, what a year. To say it’s been hard for us all (especially you lot out there) is an understatement. 

We ran out of new bicycles in April and they only just started coming back into stock at the beginning of December, tyres and inner tubes became so scarce that we’re sure they were listed ahead of gold on the desirability scale during the summer but thankfully we have plenty now. 

For 2021 some big bicycle brands have bypassed Europe completely but as an Independent Bicycle Distributor we can be a bit more nimble than the big dealers and as a result we’re regularly sourcing affordable, high quality bikes for our customers. We may not have the biggest selection just now but what we have offers the kind of quality and value that we are proud to be associated with. Whilst it’s going to be a bit hit and miss for supply of e-Bikes until easter, we are getting the occasional gem in stock so keep calling and checking because we could well have just what you’re looking for.

Last year, as our suppliers raised their prices, we worked tirelessly to hold prices down and to prioritise our service to NHS staff and other key workers; it’s important to us here at Bike Pedlars to be part of and to support the community as a whole but none of this would have been possible without the 2 most important people in our business, the versatile, Uncle Jeff  and the lovely Fran my fantastic wife for longer than I deserve, her who does the books and lets me come to the shop. Without their unending support and my determination to keep our little friendly, Local Bike Shop open and available to you all, I think we would have failed. So now that Jeff has a new part time, occasional apprentice (miracle as he’s a control freak) who has helped us no end last year and my good lady has gone electric with the long division and 9 column red books we’re confident that we’ll be here for a while yet. Oh yes and of course if it wasn’t for Mark (our web guru) you wouldn’t be reading this. Thanks is not enough. 

There is a host of people that I am grateful to for their support and encouragement including all of you, our lovely loyal customers who keep spreading a good word for us, thank you all. I will try my best to keep you all posted and will keep trying with the “facetube” and I am still amazed at all the people that actually get this far down one my tomes, as me mam calls them!

We have some great projects coming up in 2021 with Bassetlaw District Council, Cycling UK and our very own Local mental wellness and support group at Muddy Fork which we will keep you posted of on Facebook @BikePedlarsRetfordLtd and instagram @bikepedlars_retford

Please, please continue to look out for each other and stay safe. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making us feel like a valued part of this great community.

Happy 2021.

Fix Your Bike Voucher Scheme.

If you were one of the lucky few to bag a £50 voucher for the Government’s Fix Your Bike Voucher Scheme, then don’t forget that we are an authorised repairer.

The vouchers can be used to pay for bike repairs, spares and servicing up to the value of £50. If it’s going to cost more then you’ll need to make up the difference.

If you want to use a voucher with us here at Retford’s friendliest bike shop then it’s best to give us a ring first so that we can book you in. We’re on 01777 703696 and happy to give advice on repairs and servicing especially.

All of the first batch of vouchers have been claimed but there’s a good chance that the scheme will be extended as there’s very high demand. You can find out more at https://fixyourbikevoucherscheme.est.org.uk/

Don’t make us ask, please wear a mask.

It’s not that we don’t like the look of you or anything.

As you probably know it’s now the law that we should all wear a mask whilst we’re in a shop and as our shop is particularly compact it’s quite important for us all be considerate and protect ourselves.

If you don’t want to come in, or if the shop already has customers in, then just give us a knock on the door and we’ll be out to see you just as soon as we can.

Thanks in advance.

Richard.

Covid-19 We’re adapting so that we can continue to help you.

Hi everyone.

Just a quick post to say that we’ve had to change our procedures so that we can continue serving all our lovely customers during this very challenging time.

As many of you will know, our little shop in Retford Town Centre is often very busy and over recent weeks as many people have taken to their bikes either to avoid going on Public Transport or simply to enjoy their furlough time and get a bit fitter, we’ve got busier and busier. We’re concentrating on keeping you on the move so servicing and repairs are currently our priority, unfortunately new bike sales are having to take a back seat for the time being but we’ll let you know when this changes. (UPDATE JAN 2021) Lots of new & pre-loved bikes now in stock! CALL FOR DETAILS 01777 703696.

With all that in mind we’ve had to make a few small changes to the way we operate and you can find the details by clicking here.

We hope you’re all safe and well and we look forward to serving you soon.

Richard & Jeff

We hope all our customers are staying safe and well.

New E-Trike on the block

Just arrived from our suppliers, Eco-Voltz,  the all new Flex 3 Pivoting electric assisted TRICYCLE. For those of you who are not aware if you get a good speed up on your tricycle, you have to have your wits about you and learn to lean the opposite to where you steer. NOT ANYMORE!!. This great tricycle has a lever on the handlebar that enables you to release a lock in the frame that allows the trike to tilt, so, no more leaning the wrong way at speed. This also works the other way so if your are an experienced tricycle rider or are stationary you just lock the frame at the flick of the lever. Top engineering!!. It is also slightly narrower than a regular tricycle so it fits through a standard door. Oh and did I mention it was electric assisted? good for up to 30 miles on a charge (depending on terrain and size of rider) with its LG battery. A walk assist/hill climb lever and helping you move along up to 15mph assisted’ what’s not to love? I know its not for everyone but, if this was one of the few ways you could move yourself independently and still be getting some movement and exercise along with maintaining your independence who wouldn’t?

 

Cheers,

Richard
