Resurgence in cycling

People are getting their bikes out and turning to pedal power as the safest way to get around during the Covid-19 emergency.

When I spoke to Chris Ghadder, owner of Fudge’s Cycles on Monday, (before Boris Johnson’s speech) the shop was open and he said they were planning to stay open as long as they were allowed to, as they were seeing a spike in demand for repair work.

Yesterday they were working with the door of the shop closed, only letting in two people at a time, and very few people were interested in buying bikes or accessories. Most had come in for repairs.

Chris operates a collect and repair service. He will pick your bike up in his van, repair it and drop it back to you.
