Frequently Asked Questions

When and How do I sign-up for the 2015 ride?

You can sign-up here at BikearoundtheButtes.com by downloading the online form, coming in to our office, visiting:  http://www.active.com/event_detail.cfm?event_id=2121258 or by coming to the Day of Registration booth on the day of the Ride.  Register early as the prices get a little higher as the ride approaches due to the high volume of business. 

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

Check out our map above to get turn by turn directions to our starting location.

Or

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. 

Where can I find the map for the ride?

We do not distribute the maps because of our relationship with the farmers in the area. They are very generous to provide support and contribute to BAB each year and have asked that we try to limit the cycling traffic throughout the year surrounding our event because there is already a lot of cyclists on the road normally and they do not like to be hindered when transporting their equipment.

How can I purchase my t-shirt, hat, etc.?

You can purchase a shirt when you register online, visit and order on our products page, choose your shirt size when you fill out and mail your registration form, or just visit our souvenir booth on the Day of the Ride.​

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.

What is at the Rest Stops?

In addition to friendly volunteers, each rest stop has a variety of energy sustaining foods.  While each rest stop will vary slightly, you will generally find water, oranges, kiwis, bananas, rice cakes, peanut butter, Kashi bars, and delicious nut bread.  Every rest stop is equipped with bathrooms, a first aid kit, and a radio support person.  Rest stops on the longer routes will also have sports drinks, GU Gel, sandwiches, and energy bars as well.

What's for Lunch?

The Loyal Order of the Moose cooks up a delicious lunch included in the registration fee for all riders.  The lunch is also available for purchase separately for attendees that are not riding for a small fee.  Lunch includes your choice of BBQ chicken breast or polish dogs, green salad, potato salad, baked beans, bread and a dessert.  We have complimentary Pepsi products, lemonade and water available to drink.
