Covid-19 safety at BikePark Wales
Coronavirus is part of our every day lives for the time being and here at BikePark Wales we are committed to running a safe, Covid compliant facility, we are a certified “Good to Go” destination. We have undertaken a thorough risk assessment and procedure review of every department within the park and have management processes in place to make sure that our policies are more than just a paper exercise. You can visit in confidence safe in the knowledge that every effort is being made to make your visit safe. Below are a few of the headlines of how we do this, more detail can be found in the risk assessment link at the bottom of this page.
With a change in guidance from Welsh Government we will be running our buses almost (only 1 rider on the front seat) full again from Saturday 7th August. However, as per Welsh Government regulations we will be keeping face coverings mandatory at all times within the buses, windows will be kept open at all times (even if raining) and the buses will be anti-viral misted after every run to the top of the hill.
Inside the buildings
In line with Welsh government guidance for tourism and hospitality businesses we have introduced one-way systems in our bike shop, café and reception areas with any queues held outside the building. Hand sanitiser is available at all times and there will be a Perspex screen between you and any staff members indoors.
We have extended our external seating options and added a covered stretch tent to provide shelter from sunshine and rain whilst enjoying refreshments. At the moment we are providing outside seating only. To reduce contact, we are only accepting card payments during the pandemic.
We have developed industry leading hygiene practices for our hire equipment. Any item that has been touched by a customer (including bikes) is either washed in a washing machine or treated with anti-viral spray with the required contact time before it can be used again. We ask customers to follow the instructions of our hire team to reduce contact and minimise unnecessary kit contamination.
Coaching and packages
Coaching sessions are now permitted to take place without restrictions as they are held exclusively outdoors in small groups, remember though face masks will be required on the uplift. At the moment all briefing sessions for our group packages will take place outdoors, under our stretch tent if the weather requires it!
