Local Olympian Lindsay Guald 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, and in 2006 long time employee Scot Miller took over ownership. The shop is keen to connect with the active public by supporting many local bike and ski groups and programs and by selling top end bikes and cycling and ski gear to local enthusiasts and competitors.

Olympia has for years been Actif Epica’s biggest draw prize sponsor and has helped many participants gear up for the big weekend.
