Downtown Ferndale Bike Shop

comment

163 W. Nine Mile Rd., Ferndale; 248-439-1892 downtownferndalebikeshop.com

Downtown Ferndale Bike Shop proprietor Jon Hughes has bikes in his blood — he's the third generation of his family to make a profession out of bicycling, and he spent years racing, building tracks, coaching and repairing bikes before translating his bred-in-the-bone passion into his own shop. The store specializes in commuter and fixed-gear track bikes (made to order), but caters to all types and levels of cyclists, from cruisers and road bikes to BMX and vintage. Whatever your needs, the staff of accommodating cycling pros will find you the perfect two-wheeled machine; the shop also provides parts and repair services and hosts mechanic classes and group rides.
