Ever since that moment he has rode and has been dedicated to getting everyone in the saddle.
Why Bates Creek?
Kenny was born and raised in Casper, Wyoming and grew up like many Wyoming kids hunting, fishing, and hanging out on ranches. Bates Hole is a valley/hole that has several ranches and has a rich history of ranching and bootlegging during prohibition. He grew up with his grandparents and parents hunting, fishing, and helping out on a couple of the ranches in Bates Hole. He spent several days of his life fishing Bates Creek for brook trout and looking for arrowheads around many of the old Native American camps located in Bates Hole. He named his business after the place that is still very close to his heart.
The shop is a 14' enclosed cargo trailer that has been converted into a mobile repair shop. The trailer is operated completely off of solar power and has generators for backup power just in case the solar power fails. We believe in making as little of an impact on the environment as possible and recycle everything we can including tires, tubes, reuse oil/lube containers, paper, aluminum, cardboard, old bicycles, and much more. All of our rags are washable and reusable and we try use environmentally friendly and sustainable lubes/oils and cleaning supplies.
