The Gear Grinders High School Mountain Bike Club will  hold a Farm Fresh Bike Scramble fundraiser at the Johnson Farm on Sunday, Nov. 4 for their upcoming race season.

The all-comers bike event is for kids and adults of all skill levels and runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The course is an approximate 1.5 mile off-road loop consisting of rolling terrain that takes riders around the Johnson Farm public land and through some privately owned trails. The course will be open at different times for competitive, intermediate and beginner riders.

Early registration is $25 for adults, $20 for juniors, and $50 per family (scholarships available). Same day registration is $5 more.

The Johnson Farm is at 7361 Island Center Road NE.

The Gear Grinders team is made up of students from both Eagle Harbor and Bainbridge high schools, and all of the funding for transportation, equipment and other supplies is through membership fees and events such as the bike scramble.
