I have been 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 Products hosts an event we call Frostbike.  What started out as our annual open house has morphed into a mini industry tradeshow.  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 our retailers.

I have to brag a little as I’m excited that one of these seminars is being led my wife. As many of you know Laura is the project manager for Salsa Cycles.  Salsa just so happens to by owned QBP which means we work in the same building but being as there are 500+ employees 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 don’t tell anyone but it’s like getting paid to go vacation sometimes.
