Covid – 19 Response

The "shelter in place" order is unprecedented. At CentriPEDAL Bikes we have determined that our Service and Repair department qualifies as essential business in the same way automotive repair is in order to service those that need their bicycles for essential activities. Please refer to the Order of the County Health Officer to Shelter in Place for Alameda County section  As such we will be open reduced hours with minimal staff for repair service. We will observe Alameda County health guidelines for 6 feet social distancing and limit the number of people in the store to 10.  Additionally, we are frequently cleaning the surfaces and touch points within the store and bicycles will be completely wiped down with disinfectant both before and after we work on them.  We ask that you make payments with debit cards, credit cards, or mobile pay options to avoid cash handling. Our new temporary hours will be:

Tuesday – Thursday

12pm – 5pm

These hours will remain in effect until the Shelter in Place order is lifted, if business needs require adjustment, or at such time the risk of exposure to our staff becomes too high.  Call us if you have any questions 510.742.2265.  We are all in this together and appreciate your patience.
