BUTTE, Montana (June 4, 2022) – Due to the success of last year’s inaugural event, Bike Walk Montana (BWMT) is planning the return of the Divide Scramble. This one-day event features 3 mountain bike/gravel bike rides of 33, 57 and 68 miles. In addition, this year’s schedule will also include a 4 mile guided history and geology tour along the paved trail system which overlooks Butte.
The Golden Eagle Routes 1 and 2 are 33 and 57 miles, respectively. They utilize a mix of paved and gravel roads on part of the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route (created by Adventure Cycling). The Grizzly Route is 68 miles, and also includes a section of the Continental Divide Trail (not suggested for beginners). All 3 rides feature unrivaled scenic beauty, and are fully supported with aid stations, SAG vehicles and a lunch following the completion of the rides.
The guided tour/walk will feature a short mine tour, half-price admission to the World Museum of Mining and commentary from Butte history buffs. Lunch will also be provided.
Proceeds will benefit the work of BWMT, a non-profit, statewide advocacy organization working to make walking, bicycling and rolling safe and accessible for all Montanans. Additional information can be found at www.bikewalkmontana.org.
