North Valley Ride Club
Ride the Butte Meadows Loop; from Chico, to Honey Run, Sterling City, Butte Meadows, Forest Ranch and home.
Too much of a ride? Meet us in Paradise (Depot Park – 8:00am), Sterling City (Merlo Park junction – 10:00am'ish) or along the way and ride over to Butte Meadows and back. The meet-up locations and times are estimates, so start where & when you can and spin up the hill... we'll see you along the way or for lunch in Butte Meadows. You don't have to do the whole loop to be a bad ass... you just have to ride some part of it!
Be self-sufficient and prepared for mechanicals – NO sag is provided. Bring lots of water, fuel and money. We'll stop in Butte Meadows to have a snack or burger at either the Bambi Inn or Mercantile Store. OR! ...make arrangements to meet your significant other at Butte Meadows and hitch a ride home.
In short, make the ride work for you. Casual pace, an occasional regroup, a general concern for others... but be prepared for no hand-holding! This is a big ride.
81 miles, 7200' climbing
All the eat'n will be done in Butte Meadows... choice of establishments and eats. We'll try to gather and eat together; sub-groups may form.
(don't eat too much... it's a climb up to Hwy 32 from BM and a few spin-ups to FR)
