We are a biker’s best friend

Our mission is to nurture the relationship between bike and rider all year round. 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 trail.


We carry traditional, affordable bikes from Fuji, Breezer, SE, Felt and Surly. We also specialize in cargo and electric bikes from Babboe, Yuba, BionX, and Urban Arrow. We are always open to new products and ideas, if we don’t carry something you’re interested in please let us know and we’ll see what we can do to help.


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 and strive to continue the progression of bicycling interest and infrastructure in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Whether shopping for that shiny new commuter bike or just out and about in the city, stop in anytime and enjoy our little piece of paradise.
