The Chico Velo Wildflower Century
4/26/2015 E-Mail: Sierra Nevada Brewing Company 125 100 65 60 30 12 530-343-8356

The Chico Wildflower Century is regularly listed in Bicycling magazine as a Top Ten Century. It was first offered as an organized event in 1981. While the rain poured down for most of the day, about 60 riders slogged through to the finish. Today the Wildflower has something for everyone. As it has been from the beginning, our highest priority is to provide riders with the ultimate century experience.

The Wildflower has grown steadily over the years to 4,000 participants. About 3,000 riders take to the hills (Wildcat 125 or 100, and Wildflower 100 or 65), about 900 ride the Flatflowers (60, 30 or 12 miles) and over 200 young cyclists ride the Childflower 12 on the bike path to Durham and participate in the Butte Bike Coalition Bike Skills Rodeo. All the rides aim to satisfy the century rider's three biggest priorities – challenge, scenery, and food! Our routes are designed to offer 'just enough' challenge to any level of cyclist on our best rural roads lush with springtime beauty. Your rest stops are loaded with plenty of fresh baked goodies (like java, banana-walnut and lemon-poppyseed breads and raspberry and apricot granola bars), fresh fruits, salty snacks, energy bars and drinks, and each ride offers a lunch spread that accommodates any dietary constraints. And then there's the traditional rider dinner at the finish!
