Schedule for the upcoming pre-ride, race and all related events will be posted well before the next event.
Camping will be available close to the event. The exact location will be announced closer to the event. There is no cost for camping on the private land donated for use in this event, so we ask you to be especially considerate in appreciation of this donation by cleaning up after yourself. No hookups or dumping is available. Restrooms are on site for your use, free showers are a short bike ride away at Pine Elementary School and 24 hour security is provided.
There is also free camping available in the Tonto National Forest within a short bike ride of the venue area. Again, it’s very important to clean up after yourself.
Plan to camp at the venue for the weekend and enjoy all the pre- and post race activities without the hassle of having to drive. Pine is a Gateway Community to the Arizona Trail, just a short distance from your campground, and many restaurants, facilities and shops are all within walking distance. Park your car and spend your down time enjoying the cool mountain air and exploring what the small town has to offer.
FOOD & DRINK
We are pleased to be able to offer a Friday evening dinner. Cost is $10 per plate and a portion of the proceeds go to wildfire prevention and trail development in the Pine Strawberry Fuel Break. Bright and early the next morning, grab a hearty breakfast from the vendors on-site.
Music is usually offered during the days of the event and will be announced closer to the event.
NEW ADDITIONS TO THE EVENT
MORE SINGLETRACK!!! A connecter of singletrack trail has been added to the race course so that all consecutive laps will be completed in the forest, rather than riding through Pine for every lap. A new course map will be available for details and downloadable files. A secondary timing station will be set up at the intersection of Trail 15 (the Pine Strawberry Trail) and Hardscrabble Road and that’s where the feed zone will be located for your convenience. The bags will be lined up by race numbers to make it quick and easy for you.
There will be raffles and drawings along with the Awards Ceremony on Saturday. A Silent Auction of many wonderful items donated by local businesses will start on Friday evening.
A Fire on the Rim Mountain Bike Race especially for kids will take place Saturday morning.
The perfect way to end your weekend in Pine Strawberry is to get in one last ride in the cool forests of the Rim Country before heading home. And the perfect ride is our new bike trail in Pine, the Bearfoot Trail. If you’re not familiar with this trail yet, are you in for a treat!
Kids Kamp will be open this year during the race on Saturday! In Kids Kamp your kids are entertained and provided for while you race worry free. Certified child care specialists will make sure your kids have a great time with tons of fun activities, lunch and snacks. Cost is (per child) $10. Even if you’re not racing you can sign your kids up for Kids Kamp and take advantage of some down time for yourself. If you’d like to sign up you can do it along with your registration or you can sign up the day of the race.
