GPS Operations Update
Dear GPS Patrons and Cyclists,
As our incredible community continues to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are committed to being part of the solution and helping slow the spread. We have always believed that riding bikes makes the world better, and in the midst of this situation, we are only doubling-down on this belief. Riding your bike is a perfect way to avoid crowds, practice social distancing, relieve stress, replace your cancelled exercise class, and maintain a positive attitude. And we want to continue to support you in this.
Our solution to balance these two goals, and to continue to provide income for our employees and their families, is to operate on a curbside drop-off and pick-up basis. Service and sales will both be available during our normal operating hours, just with a layer of separation.
For service, scheduling an appointment is appreciated but not necessary. The process will look like this:
Park your bike against the storefront or in the bike rack.
Call us at (307) 332-2926, either before you swing by or when you’re in front of the store, to describe the service requested.
We’ll come grab your bike, wipe it down, and bring it inside.
We’ll take care of the service requested
We’ll call to notify you that the bike is ready to go and collect payment over the phone.
Swing by during our normal operating hours, call or knock to notify you’ve arrived, and we’ll wheel your bike out to you.
All of our goods are still available for sale, as well, just with the curb-side pick-up aspect. Many of you have asked how you can support us in this time - one way to do so is to purchase a gift card over the phone. We are touched to have people reaching out with this question, and through this, the quality and resilience of our community is on full display. Thank you!
And as you consider where to ride, we would like to point out that paved road and gravel riding are the best options at the moment, as Johnny Behind the Rocks and the Bus are pretty muddy and not ready for bike travel yet, and the trails in Sinks Canyon are a mix of mud and snow. We’re feeling the urge to get out on the singletrack also, but please refrain for now so the trails are in better shape for all of us this coming season.
We are always grateful for your support, and especially now.
