Hours and operation during COVID-19 pandemic
We will be open the following hours for sales, and for service drop-offs and pick-ups.
Open: 11am – 6pm everyday except Tuesdays.
We are doing all we can to accommodate everyone’s cycling needs as safely and responsibly as we can. We will be open for you to drop-off your bike for repair – please understand that it may be at least a few days, maybe a week, before we can complete the repair and get your bike back to you.
We are allowing only one person at a time in the shop. If there is someone in the shop when you arrive, please wait outside at a safe distance. We ask that everyone keep 6 feet distance from anyone else at all times. You are required to wear a mask or a face-cover over your mouth and nose while inside the shop.
Thank you, and be safe.

We Sell Bikes, Too
Gerken’s doesn’t just fix bikes; if you’re in a need of a new ride, we sell good, tough, dependable bikes at affordable prices.
Gerken’s opened in 2008, and has been constantly growing with the support of the surrounding neighborhood and New Orleans at large.
Everyone who works at the shop is an everyday cyclist. Many of us have worked bicycle delivery jobs, volunteered at community bike shops in New Orleans and elsewhere, and have worked at various shops in town and elsewhere.
What Do Our Customers Say?

Just came from Gerken’s Bike Shop, and I’m riding so smooth I have A Tribe Called Quest’s “Butter” in my head.
