About the Race

The Farm Fresh Race is an all-comers mountain bike event for kids and adults of all skill levels. Our event features several loops on rolling terrain that take you around the Johnson Farm public land and adjacent privately owned trails.

The Farm Fresh Race raises funds for the Gear Grinders Mountain Bike Team and Bainbridge Island Mountain Biking Club

Part of the proceeds will also benefit the maintenance and care for Johnson Farm through our partners Friends of the Farm(link is external).

Aside from riding and racing, there will be games for kids, food vendors, music, prizes and more.

For the Kids and Youth

The Juicebox Race is a shortened course with some climbing and descending. Parents are welcome to run along with their little ones to provide encouragement and help. Perfect for every kid who wants some fun and see what a race is like.

The Obstacle Course is a timed circuit around the orchard with various obstacles and features designed to test agility, cornering, dismounts and bike handling. Perfect for improving skills and gaining confidence.

For Juniors and Adults

The Beginner Race is the perfect opportunity to try out your bike handling skills on a moderate course in a fun environment. There will be pre-rides and plenty of opportunity to ask more experienced riders their tips and tricks.

The Competitive Races are more strenuous loops on a longer and more difficult course and designed for pushing yourself against your peers. It is the perfect warmup for a Sunday Series Race or a great way to see how you stack up against the local competition. High-level youth are encouraged to participate!
