 Booking Service

 

To make things as simple as possible, we’ve worked hard to create a user friendly booking platform. Sign up to create an account and things get even easier. You have 2 options either a van collection or workshop drop off, your bike will then go into the queue and will be aimed to be returned or ready to collect within the week. Van collections are limited to 2 a day. 

WORKSHOP FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

u

Collection and drop off?

Here at silk we try to make getting your bike fixed as little hassle as possible.

Therefore for anyone living between Teignmouth and Exminster we are offering free collection and drop off. Our collection times are between 8.30 and 9.30 and drop off times are between 5.30 and 7pm.

For anyone living in Exeter and surrounding districts there is a charge of £5. Anywhere further afield – a £10 drop off collection and drop off charge will ensue.

u

Riding spots?

I try to chuck a hand in when possible at the best local riding spot around – Café side, based on the A380 side of Haldon Hill.

The dig crew have been working relentlessly on these amazing trails for 15+ years, and have witnessed them go from a secret spot for locals to one of Devon’s best know riding locations.

Future plans are in motion to hopefully make it all slightly more official, something everyone is working hard towards. All very much a pipeline movement at the moment, but we’ll keep you updated as progress follows.

In the mean time you can donate to the Clubs PayPal – all of which goes towards trail maintenance and tool refreshments.
