Bidwell Bump

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.

Grinduro Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship

In short, Grinduro is just what the name suggests: Gravel Road Race + Mountain Bike-Style Enduro = one long loop of pavement and dirt, where finishing times aren?t based on overall loop time, but four timed segments (each roughly five-to-seven minutes).
But Grinduro is not just a bike race. It?s a celebration of cycling with as much emphasis on the fun as the ride, with excellent food, an impressive display of art and incredible handmade bikes, live music, camping and a festival atmosphere. Learn more at
