Dispatches from The Daily Rider

Update to COVID-19 Procedures and Operations

Greetings from The Daily Rider, WFH edition! We’re staffing one mechanic in the shop per day so our output is going to be limited. Please understand that we are doing this to keep our staff employed, and to continue to limit the spread of transmission. See our original post on our procedural changes here: and our Monday 3/23/20 update here:

For easier tracking purposes, please consider text based communication methods with us. We’re monitoring our email (info AT thedailyriderdc dot com) and Twitter @thedailyriderdc very attentively.

Repair Update

As of March 17th, we are suspending our repair intake to allow our repair staff to catch up. You all really like zero-contact repairs! We’ll put more updates here and on social media as we are able to accept them. Since every repair intake requires us to sanitize ourselves before leaving the shop, cleaning the key box, cleaning your lock, and cleaning the touch surfaces of your bike prior to entering the shop, we are not currently accepting small repairs such as flat tires or brake adjustments. We do apologize for this, but this procedure takes us significant additional time.

Should you wish to schedule a repair for the upcoming week (March 23-27) please contact us via text or email regarding your service needs and we will attempt to place you into our queue.

Delivery Update

We’re experimenting with delivery for a few days and had our first drop-offs yesterday (March 16th). For this we’re asking that orders are a minimum of $35 and can be carried on a cargo-bike. Additionally, the delivery area is obviously restricted to inside DC, but we’ll be making case-by-case decisions on distances.
