Our Story:

Lindsay Gauld has always had a profound love of cycling nurtured through 15 years of elite racing which culminated in his representing Canada in the 200km road race at the 1972 Munich Olympics. That love of cycling was coupled with a desire to encourage people to become more active through cycling and cross country skiing. So Lindsay started a bike ‘store’ in 1979 as part of another retail chain in the city. Olympia came into being as a stand-alone business in 1983. Passion for the activities of cycling and cross country skiing is still the driving force at Olympia Cycle & Ski today — the staff at Olympia are avid cyclists and skiers themselves, and love to share the passion with you.

In 2006 long time employee Scot Miller took over ownership of the store and maintained the high level of quality and service customers  had come to expect from Olympia. Scot is keen on continuing to connecting with the active public through organizing bike advocacy group rides, by continuing to support many local bike and ski groups and programs, and more.  Of course we continue to serve the needs of our customers by bringing in the latest gear – new stuff is always arriving.
