Minnesota that serves customers in Southern Minnesota, Northern Iowa and
Western Wisconsin. We carry a full line of bikes from Trek

BMX bikes by Haro and Dk, as well as recumbant bikes, hot rod cruisers, some novelty, and even a few electric bikes. In addition to bikes, we carry cycling accessories, clothing,
cross country skis and fitness equipment. Repairs are also a huge part of the business, we service all makes and models.
||We are proud to support the Soutern Minnesota Bicycling
Club (SMBC) which orginizes weekly road and off-road rides throughout
the spring, summer and fall. If you are interested in joining in on the rides, you can contact the bike shop during regular business hours.
A Brief History
Rydjor first opened its doors for business in 1973.
Dan and Pat, the founders(left), agreed that there was a need for a shop that
provided cycling enthusiasts with a better selection of products and better
service than was available at other local bike shops.
| The name that they chose, Rydjor Bike, is a play-on-words
based on the phrase “ride your bike” (In case you hadn't figured that out
The first shop was located in the Lakeside Shopping Mall on
the east side of Austin. By the way, if you have a photo of
that shop, Dan would really like a copy of it. As business
grew, the shop moved across town to the Sterling Shopping
Center and then to its first downtown location.
Finally, only a few years
later, Rydjor moved down the block to its current location.
