Silverstone Park based business Spyder Motorcycles has made its entire fleet of motorcycles and scooters available to hire at discounted rates for essential workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Mark and Lizzi Smith-Young’s business has a substantial fleet of makes and models from the likes of Ducati, Triumph, BMW, Piaggio and KTM.
As Mark explained: “Right now we cannot hire to the general public for obvious reasons.
“But if people can prove they are essential workers and it makes sense for them to have a motorcycle or scooter in the current climate then we can hire to them at a discounted rate.
“This of course also helps us to get through the current situation as it keeps some money coming into the business.”
He added: “We’ve already had enquiries such as someone who is installing sensors in medical centres and laboratories who needs to get from A to B.
“We can also offer our drivers and vans for logistics other than motorcycle movements, such as the transportation of medical equipment and supplies.”
Spyder Motorcycles has been based at Silverstone Park since 2015, having begun business in 2008. It originally launched in an 1,100 sq ft industrial unit before expanding to larger 2,700 sq ft premises in 2017.
It is recognised as a leading road trip operator for motorcycle enthusiasts looking to tour the UK and Europe.
Tours include annual visits to the Isle of Man TT races and World Ducati Week in Italy.
Spyder’s expertise in event organisation and logistics has recently led to it being announced as an official ‘Hire and Travel Partner’ of Silverstone Park ‘neighbour’ Ducati UK.
