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 carry traditional bikes from Fuji, Breezer, SE, Felt and Surly. We also stock cargo and electric bikes from Babboe, Yuba, BionX, IZip and Urban Arrow.


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.
