Salsa sponsors Fat Bike Summit

Published December 20, 2012

VICTOR, ID (BRAIN) — QBP brand Salsa Cycles will be the presenting sponsor of the Fat Bike Summit and Festival Event, slated for January 25-28 in Island Park, Idaho.

Organizers said the event will be "politically oriented" with a focus on gaining fat bike access to national parks and forestest. The festival will include product clinics, demo rides, and races.

The event is hosted and organized by Fitzgerald's Bicycles and QBP. Registration is now open via fatbikesummit.com.

"Salsa is pleased to be involved with the fat bike summit because land access is an important issue," said Salsa Cycles brand manager Jason Boucher, who will attend the Summit and Festival.

"Fat bikes make it possible to ride places that people couldn't ride before. Therefore we need to do our part as good stewards to help generate positive outcomes before problems develop."

During the Summit portion of the event, land managers from national parks and forests will discuss the barriers to fat bike riding on public lands.
