COVID-19 Statement
updated November 1

At Sportfit Lab, our first concern is the health and safety of our clients, customers, families, and community.   Although our type of business is permitted to be open, the Covid-19 pandemic has NOT subsided: infection rates in Northern Virginia are significant and are currently increasing slightly.  Therefore, we continue to abide by the following rules:

  • We allow no more than 10 people on our premises at any time. 
  • All persons must adhere to physical distancing of at least 6 feet. 
  • All persons on premises must wear appropriate face covering (mouth and nose).

We have never had more than 10 people in our small shop at any time.   But we will be enforcing distancing and masking procedures, and we continue to adhere to disinfecting procedures to limit any potential for disease transmission.   Our current policies are as follows:

  • We are open for limited hours...please see our updated daily schedule.
  • We strongly encourage every customer to call or email before visiting, to arrange for an appointment time.
  • All retail products are still available for purchase, in store or online.
  • We still offer the largest fleet of test bike saddles/seats for rental, by mail or in store.  Each seat is thoroughly disinfected after each use.
  • Bike fitting services are available; but distancing and mask use will be observed during service.  There can be no exceptions: if you are not comfortable pedaling a bike with a face mask, please postpone your appointment.  We also offer "remote bike fitting" using video from your home, if you have a home trainer and basic tools.
  • Bike maintenance is available: please call ahead to arrange service.  However, current wait time for service is at least one week, unless you are a current Sportfit customer.
  • When you enter our shop, you will be asked to clean your hands with disinfectant.  If you bring your bike, please clean the handlebars, shifters, frame, and saddle with a disinfectant before bringing it into the shop.

This is a time for all of us to work together as neighbors and citizens, so we can weather this pandemic with reduced risk of serious illness or death.  Don't panic, but be prudent and remember that elderly or weak individuals may be at higher risk for serious illness or death.  It is incumbent on all of us to protect them as best we can.  That means avoiding the spread of the virus as best we can, which includes physical distancing and wearing appropriate face coverings: this is not about personal freedom, it's about trying to protect our elders and loved ones, who may be at higher risk.  Above all, remember that the lives and health of all of us outweigh all other considerations: please be patient, kind, and willing to pull together in our common time of need.

Thank you!
