Covid-19 protocol: please remember to practise social distancing by remaining outside of the mechanic’s work area and keeping a 2m+ distance between yourself and others. If the event is indoors (e.g. Kirkgate Indoor Market) you must wear a face covering unless you are exempt from doing so. The mechanic will wear a clean pair of gloves for each bike and disinfect contact points before handing the bike back to you.
