This bike was spotted at the little market and gift shop at Two Medicine Lake, Glacier National Park. While that’s a place you are likely pretty safe leaving a bike leaning unlocked against a wall, there are still plenty of people around with trucks and RVs that could swallow a bike with the owner none the wiser. Plus, what if a bear wanted to ride it? What then?

This video from is a great tutorial about what might be the last thing you think of when planning a bikepacking trip. What do I do with my bike if I need to take a break in town?
