The Chico Velo Wildflower Century first began in 1981 on a very rainy day with a handful of riders and one route option. Today the ride attracts thousands of riders from all over the world partaking in one of 7 different route options ranging from 12 miles to 125 miles throughout scenic Butte County in the springtime. Riders challenge themselves with hill climbs and/or enjoy flat roads through the almond orchards. All proceeds from the Chico Velo Wildflower Century go directly toward Chico Velo's Outreach and Advocacy.
