The Cache Gran Fondo

Cache Gran Fondo

July 14 2018
Logan, Utah, USA

New for 2018, we are adding a 70+ mile route to our 100 & 50 mile courses through beautiful Cache Valley, Utah.

Always the 2nd Saturday in July, the Cache Gran Fondo provides a mostly-flat course, (except for a hill challenge in each), through one of northern Utah's best-kept cycling secrets, Cache Valley, Utah. Many riders register for their first century, the challenge of a 50-miler, a new 70+ mile route, or as a training ride for bigger events like Ultimate Challenge and LOTOJA.

2018 7th Annual Cache Gran Fondo: July 14, 2018.  Logan, Utah

The Cache Gran Fondo is an annual Italian-style ride in Cache Valley in Northern Utah. The Cache Gran Fondo occurs on the 2nd Saturday of every July and riders can ride either on a 50-mile, 70+-mile or 105-mile route. As one of the fastest-growing and largest rides in Utah, our focus has always been to create a fun, rewarding and challenging event. Our riders enjoy well-stocked support stations, chances to win great prizes, enjoy a great breakfast and lunch, receive big-blingy finisher medals, and have a fun day riding with 1000+ other inspiring cyclists. Race teams, corporate teams, families & neighborhood groups, couples and individuals all converge in Cache Valley for this big, fun, ride.

Every year we also offer a limited-edition cycling jersey AT COST - only $35.  Below is an example of the beginning design the 2018 version. The finished design is still in the works and will be posted soon.

The Finish, Lunch and the Expo

After completing your desired distance, all participants are invited to participate in the Cache Gran Fondo's Gran Feed and Outdoor Expo sponsored by the Logan Downtown Alliance. The Gran Feed will be held on 100 North between Main Street and 100 West. Logan City will close the entire street for Saturday and welcome the Gran Fondo riders to eat, meet local vendors, win prizes as part of the ride, listen to local bands and enjoy a great summer evening in downtown Logan. There will be activities for people of all ages. Additionally, thousands of community members will be mingling as part of the Downtown Logan Farmers Market adjacent to the finish area, & this weekend also marks the opening of the Cache Valley Opera season.
