High Peaks Cyclery was established in 1983 as one of the first original multi-sport stores in Lake Placid and the Adirondack Park. Owners Karen and Brian Delaney came to Lake Placid during the Winter Olympics in 1980, fell in love with the area and decided to set roots. They started High Peaks Cyclery to share their love for the area with the mission of "helping the community enjoy life and the outdoors through professional service and top notch products."
