New River Trail Outfitters, formerly Ice House Bikes, has relocated from the former Wachovia building on North Main Street to 103 N. Main St. in downtown Galax.

A local investor bought Ice House Bikes, which was located on Depot Street, to create New River Outfitters, which opened in the spring at the former Wachovia building. Hines relocated his inventory there and became the bike pro at the new store.
Hines has more than 20 years of racing competitively and also worked at New River Riders bike shop for five years before opening his own shop.
New River Outfitters will offer for sale sports accessories; a line of Element skate boards; Trek and Cannondale bikes and bike accessories; and kayaks and canoes, which will soon be in stock.
New River Outfitters also offers bike repairs, bike rentals and shuttle services on the New River Trail.
New River Outfitters is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. It is located next to The Galax Smokehouse restaurant. For more information, call 238-0075.
