Bike around the Buttes was started in 1984 by a man named Leroy Ervin, a type 1 diabetic. The original ride was from Yuba City to the Redding/Red Bluff area, but it was quickly deemed to be too long and intense for the average rider.

All of our proceeds stay locally and go to directly benefit diabetics in our community.

Todays ride consists of three courses around the Sutter Buttes.. We have a 17.5 mile course, a 40 mile course, and a 100 mile course. Our ride comes with rest stops along the way, support and gear vehicles in case of emergency, and includes a BBQ lunch and live music after the ride.

The Century course is designed for the avid, experienced rider. It is comprised of a 60 mile and 40 mile loop with five rest stops along the way. Enjoy a tour of the best views Meridian has to offer, ride along the Sacramento River, then take in all the beautiful views of the 40 mile ride to round out your experience. There is a complimentary 5 minute after ride massage included with this ride, as well as speciality energy sustaining foods such as GU Gel at our rest stops. Our Century map has even been refined to be an excellent resource for the expert cyclist.

How do I get to the Sutter Youth Organization (SYO) Building so I can check in and ride?

Take Hwy 20 towards Colusa, turn Right on Acacia Ave (North), turn Right onto Butte House Road (East). The building is located across the street from Sutter High School. Parking is available at the high school. You will be directed where to park when you enter the lot.

How difficult are the courses really? (Hilly or Flat)

The 17.5 and 40 mile course contain a 7 mile stretch of rolling hills. These slight hills make a total modest incline of 350 ft with a maximum grade of 3%. The 100 mile course is detailed on the Century map

How long is each ride going to take me?

While the amount of time every ride lasts depends on the rider, on average…

The 17.5 should take approximately 1.5 to 2 hours

The 40 should take 2.5 to 4 hours

The 100 should take 5 to 6.5 hours
