Sutter, CA – Visit Yuba-Sutter will host the annual Sutter Buttes Bike Poker Run and Wine Tasting event, a one-day, bicycle ride featuring an easy flat course, stunning views, and the greatest cycling after party complete with wine tasting, local food and live music. A scenic ride through the pastoral farmlands of the iconic Sutter Buttes (the smallest mountain range in the world), the only place in the world where you can cycle the entire base of a mountain range in one ride. The ride consists of two courses a 15-mile leisure ride, and a 40-mile. The 40-mile ride is almost complete flat with just a bit of climbing. Refueling stops are positioned along the way, and a SAG team is on hand in case of emergency.
Riders depart and finish at Cordi Winery, a picturesque vineyard and tasting room nestled at the base of the Sutter Buttes mountains. Known for their award winning California varietals and gracious hospitality. Along the route, cyclists will stop at 3 of 5 stations for refueling and poker cards. Additional cards received at registration and finish will create a 5-card hand that will combine with ride time for a total score. Winners will be awarded in both the men’s and women’s categories. A complete itinerary is included at the end of this release. The event is limited to 125 riders and is expected to sell out quickly.
Join us at the conclusion of the ride for an after party at Cordi Winery and enjoy free wine tasting, a selection of seasonal hors d’oeuvres and live music after the ride (all included in registration costs).
