Bike Around the Buttes has been held annually since 1985. It takes place on the third Saturday in April and raises money for the Diabetes Society of Yuba-Sutter. It is a bike ride around and through the Sutter Buttes. Up to 1,300 riders participate. Riders meet at the Sutter Youth Organization Building in Sutter to begin the day. Well-stocked rest stops with lunch and a finish line meal are provided. Riders receive registration refunds and/or prizes according to the amount of donations they accumulate from sponsors.

There are three courses to choose from, of varying lengths. The shortest is the 17.5-mile "Fun Course," which follows Pass Road through the middle of the Buttes and returns along the south edge of the Buttes. The 40-mile "Classic Course" is the original course, which also follows Pass Road through the Buttes but then continues north around the Buttes. The 100-mile "Century Course" follows the 40-mile course but continues along the Sacramento River and passes through Meridian. It is one of the flattest 100-mile courses in California, and is supposedly 95% flat terrain.
