Trek Bicycle is launching free home delivery throughout the continental U.S. for online bike orders through May 1, 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Trek is waiving the standard $50 fee associated with home delivery and is working with independent and Trek-owned bike shops regionally on delivery logistics where available.
“Access to alternate mobility solutions, like cycling, during a time when we are social distancing and looking for alternate modes of transportation is more important than ever,” said John Burke, president of Trek Bicycle. “Cycling plays a critical role in essential travel locally—to grocery stores, pharmacies, and more—but it also serves the greater benefit of helping people get more physical activity, clear their minds and relieve stress while society is more sedentary and anxious than ever before. We hope free home delivery helps to remove a barrier for consumers looking to cycling as a source of joy and as a mobility solution during a time when it’s needed most.”
Consumers can now select a local bike shop that ‘Offers Home Delivery’ from the list of Trek retailers in their area. The selected bike shop will build a new bike for free and arrange for free home delivery.
All open Trek retailers offer free shop curbside or in-store delivery. Although bike orders are placed at TrekBikes.com, the customer’s local retailer will still get credit for the sale. This allows customers to support local businesses in their community at a much needed time.
