COVID19

We’re still in this together.

Lockdown rules are easing in the UK from Monday 19 July.  While we are thrilled about this, we all need to remain vigilant as this pandemic is not over.  We will continually review and update our health and safety standards to be in line with the latest guidance.  All updates and changes to our policies and procedures will posted on this page.

The safety of our members, customers and team is our top priority.  Let’s work together to make sure lockdown rules can remain a thing of the past.

Our team.

Our team has received training to ensure our hygiene standards are maintained at all times.  Should any of our team test positive for COVID-19, they will be required to self-isolate in line with requirements.

While masks are no longer required, you’ll likely see our team wearing one before and after class cycling classes or when the coffeehouse is a bit crowded.

Our members and customers.

All members and customers will be required to sanitise their hands upon entering our space.  It’s an easy way to help reduce viral transmission and only takes a few seconds.

Regarding masks, common sense prevails.  While masks are no longer required, we think they are still ideal to wear before and after cycling class, especially if you are not consuming anything in the coffeehouse.

We are doing away with temperature checks before cycling class as the way forward is testing.  We strongly encourage our members and customers to test regularly and isolate if they test positive for COVID-19.  Should any cycling member test positive, they should inform us so that we can adjust their cycling pass for their self-isolation period.  We are not able to adjust passes for any self-isolation requirements due to travel.

To help avoid unnecessary queues, members should arrive no more than 30 minutes & no fewer than 5 minutes before class start time.  Dry changing rooms and lockers will be available as needed but we still encourage our members to arrive dressed and ready to ride and to refrain from bringing extra bags/belongings where possible.  Single use towels will be provided for class and members are welcome to bring their own towel if they wish.

Our classes and studio.

Our cycling studio will be returning to full capacity with all bikes bookable from Monday 19 July.  We ask that you only touch and interact with your booked bike as the studio will be thoroughly cleaned prior to each use.

Our class schedule will continually be updated and we will always allow enough time to properly clean the studio, bikes and lockers after each use with special attention paid to all touchable surfaces.

Our powerful Samsung air system will be run at full ventilation capacity allowing for full air turnover every 4 minutes in the studio.  To put that into context our system is more efficient than a standard UK hospital ward and just under what is required to provide surgery!  This is effectively more than double the efficiency of what UK government guidance required and will be a key element to help keep your studio as safe as possible during a class.

We look forward to continuing to build Cycle Culture’s community of committed and convivial riders.  We’ll see you in the saddle!
