Transit Cycles: Support Your Local Bike Shops--First in a Series

21 Mar 2022 3:41 PM | Kirk Astroth (Administrator)

TransitCycles is the first woman-owned and operated bicycle shop in Tucson. Owner and head mechanic, Jenna, has been a bicycle industry professional for over 20 years.

Jenna's passion for bicycles started in her early-teens with modified three-speeds she picked up from garage sales and thrift stores. She bought her first "real" mountain bike, a Gary Fisher Mt. Tam, in 2002 and has been hooked ever since.

Jenna began her professional career in 2001 in Rochester, NY and worked for three nationally recognized shops in the area. in 2014, Jenna left New York and moved to Santa Cruz, CA where she worked for a popular bicycle manufacturer as well as a high-end mountain bike shop in San Jose. After a few close calls in California, she moved to Tucson in 2017 and made herself at home. 

Jenna purchased her dream shop, Transit Cycles,from Duncan Benning in January 2021 and has dedicated her life in an all new way to the bicycle. 

Transit Cycles is located at 267 S. Avenida Del Convento in the MSA Annex, near the base of A Mountainand just off The Loop (exit westside at either Congress or Cushing St.)

Our current hours are 10:00 am to 6:00 pm Tuesday-Saturday and 11:00 am to 4:00 pm on Sunday. Please check our website or on Instagram @transitcycles for any changes.

Transit Cycles carries Revel Bikes, Esker Cycles, Surly, Salsa, All-City, State Bicycle Co. and Radio bicycles in stock. We also special order Why titanium bicycles, MONÉ and Baphomet steel bikes, Linus townie-styled bikes and Cleary kid's bikes. 

Transit Cycles is a full-service repair shop. From brake bleeds and suspension overhauls to building your dream bike- wheels and all, our work is done right the first time. 

After mechanical service, we specialize in what we like best: bike-packing, commuting, and doing our best to rely on automobiles as little as possible. Our weather here is absolutely fantastic in Tucson, and if you want to leave your car parked, we can help you with that. 

We carry all types of racks, bags and accessories to make getting out (or getting away) on your bike easier and more enjoyable. We do our best to carry bags and accessories made in the US. We like to support our neighbors the best we can, so in our shop you'll find brands like Bags by Bird, Widefoot, Oveja Negra, King Cage, Nittany Mountain Works, Revelate Designs, Old Man Mountain racks, DOOM handlebars and many more.
