Wilkes county is a growing destination for most outdoor activities, and we have begun a new journey in our sister city- Wilkesboro, NC. The old Texaco Gas Station has been the perfect location for a local business to offer service and support for our bicyclists and kayakers enjoying the new bike trails and rivers Wilkes County has to offer. Our new endeavor, Cook's Outfitters, will be offering kayak and bike rentals to our community, and will have an at-location bike repair shop, to help out our riders who might blow a tire or need a quick repair after hitting the trails a little too hard. Our mechanics have over 10 years of combined knowledge of repair and riding, and are here to make sure you ride safe and your day doesn't end with a flat tire.
We understand that it is our community who supports us and we rely on you to survive and thrive. We have deep roots in Wilkes and wouldn't have it any other way. When you shop and support local, that money is kept in our town, our county. It pays our employees who live five, maybe ten minutes down the road & it goes back into our community, our schools, our greenway, our trails and our river systems. We are here to grow and to learn what we can do better to be better. We know when in Wilkes County it's Family First, Family Always and YOU are our Family. Thank you for helping us survive and thrive.
In 2020, we branched out to our second Outfitters location, specializing in bike and kayak rentals, bike accessories, disc golf supplies, and our very own Outfitters apparel.
