SAFETY PROCEDURES

AT THE STUDIO

Please adhere to not mixing with anyone you do not live with or share a support bubble with and uphold the rule of 6. Please be respectful of everyone's space and maintain social distancing.


TRACK & TRACE

Every rider will now have to scan the studio's QR code when they arrive using their NHS COVID-19 app. Each studio will have a unique QR code and posters featuring these codes will be displayed by the studio entrances for you to scan.

Through doing this we will all help support contact tracing.

MASKS

We are now encouraging the use of masks in all common areas of the studios. Don’t worry, you won’t have to wear a mask when sweating it out on a bike or in the changing rooms, but we do advise you to wear a mask when you arrive at the studio and are waiting for your class in the common areas.

Our front of house team members will also be encouraged to wear masks when they're not working behind the reception screens.

CLASS TIMES AND SCHEDULE

We will be offering classes at reduced occupancy to allow for more space between bikes. Also, our schedule will change to offer more class times throughout the day to reflect our newly flexible schedules and allow 45 minutes between each class in any one studio to ensure time for thorough cleaning of the bikes and studio. We are also upping our already comprehensive cleaning regime.

CONTACT FREE PAYMENTS

Boom Cycle remains cashless, please log into your account and add card details for contact-free purchases.

ARRIVAL TIME

Please arrive no earlier than 25 minutes before the start time of your class and no later than 10 minutes before. If its your first time in please do not arrive later than 15 minutes before your ride so that you can watch the bike set up DEMO 10 minutes before your ride.

PLEASE ADHERE TO SOCIAL DISTANCING GUIDELINES ON THE FLOOR WHERE YOU SEE THEM.

There will also be screens around the reception to minimise contact when arriving for your class.

TEMPERATURE CHECKS

Before entering the studio each rider will have to undertake a non contact temperature check. If your temperature is 38 degrees celsius or above, you will not be able to ride.

SWEAT TOWELS AND SHOES

Please collect your bike shoes at check in.

Bring your own filled water bottle – if NEED be you can refill your water. There will also still be bottled water available for purchase.

ONLINE ASSISTANCE

To limit interactions between riders and staff please address issues on email only/not in the studio.

ORDERLY EXIT

Do not leave before the class ends. When the class is over you will be directed to leave row by row to avoid a bottle neck at the studio door. Please wait for your row to be called.

Shakes are to be pre-ordered before class. Please order your shake once you arrive in the studio. If you do not pre-order a shake you will not be able to purchase one. Coffee and tea are still available for purchase at studios where there is a coffee bar.
