Downtown Ferndale Bike Shop

Voted the Detroit area's best cycling store, we had to investigate Downtown Ferndale's Bike Shop for ourselves.  It's a friendly place with a very knowledgeable staff. The owner, Jon Huhges, is the grandson of Mike Walden (poster above!), the biking coach for whom the vélodrome in Rochester Hills is named. It's all in the family, as Jon's father, Dale Hughes, built the vélodrome and several others throughout the world. Jon helped on all of them. An MSU grad with a political science degree, Jon's heart lies in biking and the cycling fever is contagious in his shop which specializes in fixed gear bikes. Come on in and get fitted cause it's springtime and perfect for the bazillion or so organized rides coming down the pike in glorious Michigan.
