COVID UPDATE | G!RO IS IN TIER 2

As you will have seen, the government has announced an update to the current Covid Restrictions by regions. As a cafe, we are based here in Elmbridge in leafy Surrey, which as of this weekend is moving into Tier 2 restrictions, or a High risk level. 

With these current restrictions in place, this will have an impact on the way things will be run in the cafe:

Firstly, the Rule Of 6 now only applies for groups meeting outside only - not indoors. This means that our seating inside will be reserved for individuals & groups from only one household. Upon arrival you will be greeted by a host, who will show you to your table. Please note this will be on a first come first serve basis, and we are unable to take bookings. For all other groups & guests, you are still very much welcome to come here and sit in our outdoor seating area, or for our takeaway service. Please be aware that space is limited outdoors, but we will do all we can to accommodate you.  

Over the next few weeks, we will be working hard to make that space as comfortable as possible; We currently have blankets available, and will be installing heaters outside as the days get cooler.

Asides from that it is very much business as usual, and we are looking forward to seeing you here over the next few weeks.

Don't forget as cyclists we are unable to ride in groups of more than 6, and don't forget to wear a mask when in the cafe at all times until seated. 

As always we truly appreciate your support and patience during these changes... its a crazy time, but we are so happy to be still open and able to serve you all!!!

Cheers guys, see you soon!

G!RO’s Guide to Winter - Vol.1 Kitting up!
G!RO’s Guide to Winter - Vol.1 Kitting up!

October 16, 2020

Here at G!RO we love riding… It plays a huge part in our daily lives and is central to the lives of many within our community. We love to #RideWithMates, enjoy a pre-ride, mid-ride or post-ride cafe stop and use the bike as a tool to keep sane and fit. Winter, particularly UK winter, poses a threat to all this. It make’s ticking off the KM’s harder as daylight hours are slowly crushed inwards as we race towards winter solstice and gaps in the grim weather become fewer, and further between. However, here at G!RO we’re dedicated to keeping everyone riding as much as humanly possible, especially this year (2020) with all the challenges and troubles we’ve all had to face - now, more than ever we must cherish the head clearing, blood pumping goodness a bike ride can bring you. We must chase those endorphins as much as we can, and whilst winter will try and sap the goodness away; here at G!RO we’re dedicated to bring you all our favourite tips and tricks to maximise your winter riding and reap the benefits even in deepest, darkest December.

Downrock Diaries - PART 1
Downrock Diaries - PART 1

June 15, 2020

The Curve Downrock honourably lives up to the press Curve give it on their website, not that I’ve seen a frill neck lizard fanging around on hot sand before, but riding this beast has given me fairly clear picture of exactly what this looks like. Look out for me on the dusty hillside of Ranmore this summer, and you’ll never need to watch a nature documentary about a frill neck lizard again.
