Salsa Cycles Presents: Touching The Sun

Filmed on beautiful Northern Minnesota trout lakes, two friends share how their love of mountain biking, fly fishing, and the outdoors are brought together in perfect harmony with the Salsa Blackborow fat bike.

We’re pleased to present a new Salsa Cycles short film; Touching the Sun.

Minnesota has 180 stream trout lakes, scattered throughout the state. Many of these are located in Superior National Forest and offer a prime opportunity for exploration, solitude, hard-earned but rewarding access points, and adventure by bike.

Loading up the Salsa Blackborow fat bike with fly rods, float tubes, fins, camping gear, and all the associated items for a few days of life in the woods and on the water resulted in memorable days.

Trails were ridden. Trout were brought to hand. Mother Nature showed her many moods. Fine camp living was enjoyed to the fullest.

It doesn’t get much better than that.
