The sixth annual mountain bike race in Pine / Strawberry Arizona that raises funds to protect the communities from forest fires. The 15 mile course climbs the steep Hardscrabble Road from Pine, up over Strawberry Mountain, into the town of Strawberry, and back down single track to Pine. Racers do 1, 2, or loops.
These photos are from where I volunteered at the turn from Forest Road 428 into the private ranch land leading to the climb over the mountain top. Learn more and maybe ride next year at fireontherim.com
