BUTTE - The Divide Scramble is back in for a second year in Butte for locals and travelers to enjoy riding the trails on the seat of a bike.
From the easy Golden eagle route to the difficult Grizzly, the Divide Scramble can be enjoyed by beginner and expert cyclists of all ages.
Bikewalk Montana is hosting the event to raise awareness for safe biking, walking, and rolling throughout the state.
"Our view is we need to change the culture to make it safer for people using non-motorized transportation to get to and from work—biking and walking," said Bruce Anderson, Bikewalk Montana's Executive director
Volunteers will oversee registration, rest stops, and the help desk to name a few jobs. No matter where you are on the course, you’ll be able see cyclists, cheer them on and help them however you can.
Carmen Winslow says she had a wonderful time as a volunteer for the event last year.
"It was great. My job was to maintain the service area at the Lowland campground where people would ride up Lowland Road and then they would get lunch and drinks and visit," said Winslow.
The difference for this year’s scramble is that it will be held on June 18.
"This year we’ve requested our permit from the Forests service in June hoping that it’s a little cooler and a lot less smoke," said Anderson.
