Is 13 your lucky number? This year it is for the Utah-Cache Gran Fondo. 2024 is our 13th year, and the event is Saturday July 13th, so naturally we applied a ‘Lucky 13’ theme and started printing posters, flyers, jerseys, tshirts, hats and signs with shades of green. The Cache Gran Fondo is for everyone, whether you are just getting into the great sport of cycling, or racing for a chance to beat riders from another team or compete at the USA Cycling Gran Fondo National Championship on Sept 15th, (the weekend following LOTOJA).

The event offers 4 distances, including 4 recreational categories of 35-, 50-, 75- and 100 miles, and 2 race categories on the 75- and 100-mile course. For racers, the top 20% in 16 age categories get their tickets punched to compete at Nationals!

The beautiful Cache Valley layout spreads our riders and racers out over mostly quiet, smooth roads, moderate to challenging climbs, exhilarating descents through the backroads of Northern Utah and Southern Idaho.
