Fall in Cache Valley means it’s time for The Cache Valley Century
LOGAN, Utah (August 15, 2023) — The Cache Valley Century is the last long century (and metric century) leading up to Logan-To-Jackson (LOTOJA), and will take place on Saturday, August 26th, 2023. The Cache Valley Century has always been a favorite fall ride in Northern Utah and southern Idaho, and many cyclists training for LOTOJA start their tapering after this ride every year.
This year, the ride is directed by Troy Oldham who also organizes the Cache Gran Fondo, a mainstay on the Utah and national calendar. While Oldham has taken the reins from Common Ground Adventures, a non-profit that supports adaptive athletes, the ride will remain a fundraiser for Common Ground’s cycling programs
Cyclists start and finish in Richmond, Utah near the Utah/Idaho border in Northern Utah. Richmond City is a major sponsor for the event and a very cycling-friendly community.
The Cache Valley Century offers 3 beautiful courses through the Cache Valley countryside on lightly-trafficked roads in Utah and Idaho with distances of 38, 60 and 100 miles to suit all rider skills and abilities.
In late-August, the deciduous trees in the mountains and glades of Northern Utah are starting to change to the Autumn colors which contrast with the green agricultural fields of alfalfa, wheat, and corn.
All distances offer well-stocked support stations with real food from Lee’s Marketplace, sports fuel from Hammer Nutrition, and refreshing Pepsi/Gatorade products. All riders are offered a light breakfast at the start-line, and a hearty lunch at the finish line. All riders will receive their choice of a trucker hat or ball cap, and if you prefer a T-shirt over the hats, we will have T-shirts as well. The first 400 riders will receive a free pair of arm warmers too!
There will be many chances to win gift items, bike stuff, gifts cards, and other awesome prizes, just for registering and participating in the event!
