We have made some major changes to this event by moving deeper into the Sierra. With a new start/finish venue at Shaver Lake, we’ll take you up and over Kaiser Pass, exceeding 9,100′ above sea level. If that’s not enough, we’ve included two genuine gravel road segments to grab your adventurous spirit. Both hard and extra-hard routes will be timed with awards going to the top competitors in various age/gender categories.
One of the best parts about the ride is that you can cover a huge distance, tackle big Sierra climbs and spend hours in the saddle with the support you need to do it all with relative ease. We provide staffed and stocked aid stations with great food, on-course and roving support and marshaling and periodic traffic control to make an epic day on the bike fun and memorable.
The Buffalo Bicycle Classic dates back to 2003, having raised over 3.9 million dollars in support of student scholarships at CU Boulder. The students served by the BBC are some of Colorado’s brightest; each entering CU with over a 4.0 high school GPA. Our student scholars also demonstrate strong financial need, which makes this scholarship particularly important.
The BBC now offers 7 cycling courses, varying in difficulty as well as two running races: The Buffalo Run 5K and 10K. No matter your age, experience, or physical ability, we have a route for you! Enjoy the beautiful vistas Boulder has to offer, stop by one of our delicious aid stations, or climb Boulder Canyon in confidence thanks to the westbound lane closure. Whatever way you look at it, the Buffalo Bicycle Classic is a great event for a great cause.
RATPOD starts and ends each year in Dillon, Montana. Registration for RATPOD is open to individual riders who are welcome to ride as much or as little of the route as desired. Riders who choose to ride only part of the 127-mile route are responsible for their own logistics and transportation between Dillon and their alterate start/finish location(s). There are five food/water stops along the route, as well as pre-ride block party (Friday evening) and post-ride food and festivities (Saturday night) following the ride at the start/finish on the University of Montana-Western campus in Dillon.
The 100-mile route contains 2,871 feet of elevation with multiple climbs. Participants in the 100-mile route may also participate in the King of the Hill Challenge. The 25-mile route takes riders on a flatter, easier route through the center of the peninsula.
The Peninsula Century begins with a rollout start at Sister Bay Waterfront Park at 7 a.m. and finish with a post-ride party featuring a gourmet taco bar from Thyme Catering, desert of cherry crisp from Seaquist Orchards and ice cream from Door County Ice Cream Factory, and Door County Brewing Co. beer and music beneath a tent at Waterfront Park.

Registration fees help support our Challenge Scholarship Program, focusing on at-risk high school students. Our club, while working with school counselors, identify 10th grade students that are at risk of not graduation high school. After the selection process up to 8 students are paired with mentors (club members) for a two-year period. During the two-year period club members help keep the students on track to graduate, with the possibility of 2 students being awarded a $10,000 scholarship each to the college or trade school of their choice.
The Wenatchee Sunrise Rotary Club helps fund a number of local projects such as Rotary Park, and the Second Harvest Food Truck. Our club is also involved with hunger & disaster relief, Polio eradication, international student exchange programs, and numerous community projects.
