We are a biker’s best friend

Our mission is to nurture the relationship between bike and rider. At Varsity Bike & Transit, your bike is more than a toy to us, it is a tool, a resource— an elemental part of your life. We know a good bike is only as good as its rider, and by providing an informed, bike- friendly community we pledge to provide the best quality service to keep you on the trail.

We have the new models from Fuji, SE, Breezer, Surly, Torker and Felt in stock. Our selection of electric bikes from Felt, IZip, Stromer, A2B and BionX is growing and our cargo bikes from Babboe, Yuba and Surly are becoming more and more popular. Come down and test ride anything that interests you.

We are located in historic and happening Dinkytown on the east bank of the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus. We understand and embrace living in a modern urban environment.
