COVID-19 Statement
updated 3/24

At Sportfit Lab, our first concern is the health and safety of our clients, customers, families, and community.   The Virginia government has mandated that "non-essential" retail businesses may remain open, but must follow strict procedures:

  • No more than 10 people may be on premises at any time. 
  • All persons must adhere to social distancing of at least 6 feet. 

We have never had more than 10 people in our small shop at any time.  However, we intend to comply with social distancing; and to adhere to strict disinfecting procedures to limit any potential for disease transmission.   As of March 24th, our policies will be as follows:

  • We will remain open for limited hours...please see our updated daily schedule.
  • We ask that every customer 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 will be limited to customers with urgent fitting needs; and strict distancing will be observed during service.  We are instituting "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.
  • When you enter our shop, you will be asked to clean your hands with disinfectant.  If you bring your bike, you will be asked to 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.  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!
