About Bike around the Buttes (No refunds rain or shine)
Bike around the Buttes started in 1985 by a man named Leroy Ervin,
who had type 2 diabetes. 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!

Today’s ride consists of four courses around the Sutter Buttes.  
We have a 20, 40, 65, 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 lunch and live music after the ride.  

All proceeds stay locally and  benefit people who live with diabetes in our community.
