I have beenÂ nominated to post a riding/racing photo every day for 10 days.
Bike Photo Day 5: Yaak, Montana August 18, 2015
Each February my work Quality Bicycle ProductsÂ hosts an event we call Frostbike. Â What started out as our annual open house has morphed into a mini industry tradeshow. Â On top of allowing our dealers a chance to visit our building and interact with our employees and vendors it also includes educational opportunities in the way of seminars for ourÂ retailers.
I have to brag a little as I’m excited that one of these seminars is beingÂ ledÂ my wife. As many of you know Laura is the project managerÂ for Salsa Cycles. Â Salsa just so happens to by ownedÂ QBPÂ which means we work in the same building but being as there areÂ 500+ employeesÂ we aren’t quite bumping into each other all the time.
So why is this relevant? Well the reason Laura is giving her seminar this weekend is that this past summer she and two others took part in a company sponsored bike packing trip into the Montana wilderness. This all female group spent four days riding between different fire huts camping each night high atop a mountain in the huts. Who did they get to go along to photograph? You got it. Shh donâ€™t tell anyone but itâ€™s like getting paid to go vacation sometimes.
Camera: Canon 5 Mark II Focal Length: 16mm Shutter Speed: 1/15 Aperture: f/22 ISO: 100 To view more photos from the trip jump to the next page and make sure to read all about their adventures on Salsa Cycles website.
