Our History

Welcome... Petri Bikes! We are the place to go for answers, advice, and the products you need to make your cycling experience enjoyable.

Our stores were founded in 1946 by Al & Joyce Petri. Our first location, originally called Alt's Bike & Toy and then called Al Petri & Sons Bicycles, was opened in Lincoln Park, down the street from our old Fort Street location. We then opened a second store in Trenton in 1967 and moved to our Woodhaven location in 1978.

We have always been a family Bike shop! The fourth and fifth generation of the Petri family is actively engaged in helping your cycling experience be the best it can be! For over 77 years we have continued to be Downriver's family-owned, full-service bicycle shop. We have always been driven to provide our customers with excellent quality products and expert service.


Keeping Metro Detroit on wheels since 1946.      

Petri Bikes is family-owned and operated. We pride ourselves on having a friendly staff, quality brand name bikes, and expert repair service. These are just a few of the reasons why we are the best choice for all of your cycling needs.


We are dedicated to customer satisfaction and we refuse to settle for "just good enough". Every product, every new bicycle, every repair, is to be the best it can be. Our assembly, service, and repair standards are among the HIGHEST in the industry!

For us, bicycling is a family tradition. Three generations of our family are active in the bicycle business. Many of our customers' parents and grandparents purchased their first bicycle from us, and they have a family tradition of coming back.


Quality Products

We stand behind all the products we sell, ranging from small accessories to high-end bicycles. At our shop we take the time to educate our customers about the differences between a cheap department store (toy) bicycle and a quality bicycle. Here at Petri Bikes, we believe a bicycle purchased from us should last a lifetime with proper maintenance and care.
