At Cumberland Transit, we like to think that being outdoors isn’t just an activity: It’s a lifestyle. Life is just more fun when you get moving. And no matter what you need to get out and have a good time, we’ve got you covered. With decades of combined knowledge and experience—not to mention a super friendly and approachable nature—our staff can outfit you for every adventure.
Cumberland Transit started in 1971, with 10 bikes for sale in the front window of a copy center. Since then, we’ve grown into Nashville’s oldest and largest locally-owned outdoors and adventure retailer. Whether you’ve been training for a high-altitude trek or you’re looking for comfortable active wear for the weekends, our knowledgeable staff will steer you in the right direction. And we’ll do it with a smile, too. Our rustic atmosphere and wide array of gear from brands you can trust has our community touting us as the Best in Nashville in the Nashville Scene and Nashville Business Journal.
Our owners and our employees are passionate about the great outdoors—and they are even more dedicated to helping people tap into new adventures. You can feel the supportive, friendly atmosphere created by our expert staff as soon as you walk through the doors. At Cumberland Transit, we believe in connecting people to the gear they need to learn new skills, find new interests, and keep doing the things they love.
At our store, we don’t just represent Cumberland Transit: We represent the lifestyle and activity you are shopping for. Find out for yourself by clicking Meet Our People.
