Philadelphia’s bike culture is something special. Not only do we have bike lanes connecting urban areas to scenic suburbs, but we have spaces that seek to make the sport accessible to any type of rider. Here are 15 shops and cafes catering to all things biking.
1900 West Girard Avenue, Francisville
Having a bike is an experience, and that’s what Henry Sam has created at his retail space, repair shop, and cafe. Just a couple blocks from Girard College, Kayuh sells bikes and gear for adults and children — from cables to shorts to hydration packs. He also is very welcoming to beginners, helping new riders pick the bike of their dreams. Plus, at the in-store café you can enjoy a banh mi and Vietnamese coffee while you wait for your bike to get a tune-up.
1901 S 13th St, South Philly
This South Philly staple wants to help you become a more confident rider. Not only do they sell bike brands like Schwinn, GT, and Brooklyn, but they also offer clinics for new riders and reasonably-priced repairs.
1529 Spruce Street, Rittenhouse
The name suits this shop because not only do they sell and repair bikes, they build them. One of their designs was created for Biria as the brand’s first bike made exclusively for the US market.
622 South Broad Street, Washington Square West
A city mainstay for almost 40 years, this place — which we once described as looking like a granddad’s garage — is the place to go for not only servicing and sales, but bike nostalgia. It’s also a Best of Philly-winner for excellent bike repairs.
1320 East Passyunk Avenue, Passyunk Square
Steve Bell’s shop has been a city staple for over a decade, and he sells a range of styles — from city to hybrid to mountain bikes — something for every kind of rider.
701 South 50th Street, West Philly and 4311 Lancaster Avenue, Ardmore
Owners Monica Pasquinelli and Sam Davis have a knack for taking old bikes and making them shiny and new. Their sister shops offer affordable bikes, since many are refurbished. The stores also carry brand-new bikes — from BMX bikes to mountain bikes — and even skateboards and apparel.
1822 Spring Garden Street, Spring Garden and 919 Montgomery Ave, Narberth
Both stores are one-stop shops for all things bicycles. They provide expert advice, repairs, and sales of bikes, parts, accessories, and apparel.
2315 N. Howard Street, Fishtown
This is the place you go if you will be carrying more than yourself on your bike. They have everything you could possibly need to transport packages, kids, you name it. They sell traditional and electric bikes, and they offer repair services.
1627 N. 2nd Street, Fishtown
JUNTO knows that sometimes we need a break from peddling, so it sells an extensive collection of e-bikes. They include utility bikes for couriers and leisurely bikes for those who need a little power on their rides.
201 South 25th Street, Center City and 3740 Main Street, Manayunk
Cadence understands that biking isn’t just about buying equipment and hitting the road, so their stores go above and beyond the typical bike sales and repairs. Cadence has an indoor studio, lab testing, and it offers race coaching opportunities for new and seasoned riders. The Center City location also has a cafe.
These shops take the intimidation out of trying a new sport. With the help of knowledgeable staff, novice bikers can feel at home in the biking world here. The store also carries an extensive line of bikes from brands like Specialized and Trek, as well as electric bikes.
Trek Bicycle is the place for Trek bikes (duh), as well as other popular brands. Local stores offer in-store credit if you bring in an old bike. (This comes in handy for little ones that grow like weeds.)
