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."

In summer they shine with expertise in all models of Giant and Scott bicycles, triathlon, running (road and trail), hiking and backpacking, canoe, kayak, and SUP equipment, rock climbing gear, apparel and much more. Need information on where to go and what to do? Our staff are know the trails from personal and guiding experience and can share a wealth of knowledge of where to hike, bike, ski, etc. 

In winter we excel in Nordic, telemark and A/T skis, equipment and outerwear, snowshoes, ice climbing gear, winter outerwear and so much more. We’ll share trail conditions and information on the best places to ski or snowshoe, just stop in our shop and chat with our staff! 


Also within our retail building is a rock climbing gym, fitness/yoga studio and our famous "Recyclery" Consignment and Sale Room, which has highly discounted sale items from High Peaks Cyclery as well as lightly used consignment gear and clothing from customers like you.


High Peaks Cyclery also has a guide service—High Peaks Mountain Guides— to outfit you and your group and take you out exploring. We offer introduction classes, ACA paddling instruction courses, explorations into the High Peaks Region, rock or ice climbing 101, 102 or 103 courses, adventure cycling expeditions, and much more!
