Y’all. We can’t tell you how much we appreciate everyone’s support and patience as we work through this very difficult time. Unfortunately, there in no training for this…

It is our core belief that the bicycle is one of the greatest forms of recreation, transportation and exercise available to the human race and we need all these things more than ever!

The bottom line is your health and safety, along with ours, is of the utmost importance, so we are going to continue to do what we can to service our beloved cycling community here in Macon.

We have now implemented a 10 person maximum occupancy in the building, which includes our team. If we’re at capacity, we ask that you wait outside the building. Just like a busy bar, we’ll mange this by a one-in-one-out rule. No messing around here, I am a trained bouncer from one of the roughest college bars south of the Macon Dixon line, Dingus Magees.

For the next few weeks, we’ve also cancelled our weekly Crank-to-Coffee ride. Please keep up with us on Facebook for more updates on this and other rides in the area.

We are actively updating our website to help you show your bike some love from the comfort of your home. Tonight, we added a form where you can schedule a tune up, annual service or repair and you can also request us to pick-up your bike (for a small fee, depending on where you live)!

You are also welcome to phone-in orders and we’ll meet you outside when the order or bike is ready for pick-up.

Do you need a new bike form Bike Tech to help you get outside and maintain your mental health? You can buy your new Giant, Liv, Momentum, Jamis or Specialized whip directly on their website! Want a Surly, All-City or something else cool and/or custom? Let us know. Bikes will ship to the shop and we’ll build, tune and test ride before delivery. Many of the parts, accessories, apparel and footwear on these sites will ship directly to your crib. Online sales from these sites will help support us and our team.
*Jamis has a limited selection available for purchase online. Want something specific from the Jamis catalog? Call or email and we’ll be glad to order for you!

Now, for the obvious stuff — if you are sick, if you feel sick, if you are just getting over a sickness, or if you’ve been around someone who is sick, show some respect and wait to visit our store (or any establishment for that matter, unless it’s the Hospital) until you are 100% clear and healthy. If you’re not sure, please consult with your doctor. Everyone needs to be as cautious and respectful to one another as possible.

One more reminder, WASH YOUR HANDS, KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF YOUR FACE, SNEEZE INTO A TISSUE, HANDKERCHIEF OR THE INSIDE OF YOUR ELBOW, AND DISINFECT FREQUENTLY AND OFTEN! We must be diligent in helping slow the spread of the coronavirus.

Thank you again for your support. We’re trying to proceed in the safest, most responsible manner. We greatly appreciate you and everyone else doing the same.

We will get through this, we will be stronger after it’s all over (and stronger riders, right?!?)! We highly encourage you and your people to ride your bikes. It reduces stress, combats anxiety and strengthens your immune system (maybe we should be riding our bikes all the time!). In the meantime, be kind to one another, be respectful of one another, be patient with one another, and wash your dang hands!

Remember, biking is the original form of social distancing!

All the best,
Bobby and the Bike Tech Team
