Top of the List

About 800 bicyclists rode around the Sutter Buttes on April 21, 2018, to help raise funds for a local diabetes support network as part of the 33rd annual Bike Around the Buttes event, organized by the Yuba-Sutter Diabetes Support and Resource Center.

Bike Around the Buttes

Hundreds of bikers are expected to hit the back roads around the Sutter Buttes on April 23 for the 35th annual Bike Around the Buttes event.

“Bike around the Buttes started in 1985 by a man named Leroy Ervin, who had Type 2 diabetes,” read a statement from organizers. “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. We are keeping the ride active and local!”

Hosted by the Northern California Lions Clubs Health Foundation, proceeds benefit the Yuba-Sutter Diabetes Support and Resource Center.

The trek will begin at the Sutter Youth Organization Building, 7740 Butte House Road in Sutter and four courses are offered – a 20-mile Lil Scoop ride, a 40-mile Classic Scoop ride, the new 60-mile Single Scoop with Nuts ride and the 100-mile Double Scoop with Nuts Century ride. Start times vary from 6 a.m. through 8:30 a.m., depending on the course and rides take about two to seven hours to complete.

Registration costs $40-$55 in advance and can be completed online at Riders can also register on the day of the event for $55-$80.

All rides are equipped with rest stops along the way, support and gear vehicles in case of emergency and include a lunch from Fernando's Cali Kitchen and live music after the ride.
