Bicycle sales have increased and more people have been seeking bike repairs during coronavirus restrictions.
Ron Boulton Cycles owner Peter Boulton said there was an initial down turn when social isolation and coronavirus controls were first introduced.
However, he said since then the number of people wanting to purchase bikes for themselves or their children, or have old bikes fixed up has increased.
"It's legal exercise," Mr Boulton said.
"It's great exercise and good for the heart.
"They can do it all together, it can be a family thing."

Mr Boulton said most sales had been for mountain bike type bicycles and while some riders had been using the trails at Mount Canobolas, most people wanted to ride in town and around their neighbourhoods.
"People have been wanting to get kids out of the house and get them out from under their feet for the past few weeks," he said.
When it came to repairs he said there were a few "old relics" that had been in the back of the shed, but most were for tyre or tube repairs.
Mr Boulton said it was legal for children aged under 12 to ride on foot paths and all bike riders must obey road rules, wear a helmet and he recommended they wear bright clothing.
