We are a biker’s best friend

Our mission is to nurture the relationship between bike and rider; it is to keep you on the road so you can do what you do. We accomplish this by doing what we do: providing excellent service and sales. 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 so that you can pedal less oil.

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