Many of us ride our bicycles for transport, and with all the home restrictions in place riding to the shops can also provide us some exercise in the day.
However, bike shops are feeling the strain like all other retail and some may have chosen to reduce hours, which could cause problems if something goes wrong with your bike.
We'll try to keep this list updated of which Tasmanian bike shops are open and what they are offering, but if you know of any other shops or bicycle repairers please let us know.
Contact shop to book in service, hours reducing, will do local pick up and delivery.
