COVID_19 UPDATE - May 14th

Once again we want to take a moment to say a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has supported us over this past few weeks, in what are unprecedented times. 

As many of you will know, this week the government has laid out its initial guidelines to ease the restrictions on the Lockdown measures the UK has been in for the last few weeks. Taking all of the available information into consideration, we have in turn begun to plan our stages of reopening. It is important to stress that at the centre of any plans is the health and safety of you our customers and your loved ones, and that our staff. 

So our initial reopening plans are as follows:

- We will reopen Tuesday May 26th. 

- Reduced Opening Hours of 8am - 2pm, Monday - Friday only. 

- Strict Takeaway Only Service. Coffes, Hot Drinks, Cold Drinks, Pastries & Light Bites, as well as some local produce for your homes. 

Whilst we are really excited to be opening again in some capacity, it is important to reiterate that Social Distancing is still in force, and we will be supporting this fully. There will be clear instructions for service & queueing, and we ask for your patience and cooperation with these new measures. 

It is also important to stress that we will not be allowing any groups to gather outside the cafe during this period. The service we are offering is takeaway only, and ask again for your support and understanding here. 

This will be reviewed regularly in light of any new guidelines given. 

Once again, we are incredibly excited to be opening our doors (albeit partially) and seeing our customers once again!  

Many Thanks, Jordan & the G!RO Team

Diaries from the Virtual Road Part 2 - G!RO is Still Here, Zwifting Away

April 27, 2020

As hopefully some of you will have seen in part 1, we’ve been doing regular Zwift meet-ups for you guys, the G!RO community. A great way to ride socially, with mates without disregarding the incredibly important lockdown measures we are still living under here in the UK. It goes without saying, this offers an incredible tool to ride responsibly and protect the NHS as they admirably negotiate this difficult time. We have been championing the need to ride responsibly since day 1 of the lockdown here in the UK, and our Zwift rides are one of the many ways we are doing this, hopefully boosting morale and helping everyone keep pedalling despite the ongoing situation.

Here are some of Danny's top tips to ensure the time on the turbo is fun, engaging and productive - so you can maximise the benefits.
