Buying a bike for Christmas in the time of COVID
13 November, 2020
Bicycles are one of the few winners in the wake of the COVID pandemic. It seems everyone is discovering the simple pleasures to be enjoyed getting out on your bike. Still looking for a bike? Reid Cycles have you covered.
From families finally having the time to ride together, fit-freaks who can no longer get their fix at the gym or people who are wary of catching public transport during a pandemic – bicycles are ticking all the boxes for a socially-distant, mindful and healthy outlet during these crazy times.
This surge in demand coupled with supply issues from the major bicycle producing centres has created a perfect storm with many bike shops now running out of bikes leading up to the busiest bike time of year – summer and Christmas.
Reid Cycles however is in a great position and has bikes available to buy now. Our direct supply model and strong relationships with producers have meant Reid has secured elevated stock levels to meet the peak demand we are now seeing.
You may still see a queue out the door of a Reid Cycles store, but this is because of social distancing rules and the personal service you receive inside.
