Bidwell Bump

Chico, CA

The mission of our organization is to get more people to ride their bikes and enjoy a healthy lifestyle. The Bidwell Bump MTB race is an event with a 40 year history and is a point of pride for many in Chico. The fact that the cross country and downhill courses are considered very tough even though both are relatively short, gives this race a mystic. The fact that the first organized running of this race was in August 1976 gives it a historical aspect that puts it on par with the group in Marin County that is now credited with the invention of the mountain bike.
