Ranked one of the top Gran Fondo events in North America, the 10th annual Cache Gran Fondo takes place next Saturday on July 10th 2021. Join over 1500 competitive and recreational Cyclists on a ride through beautiful Cache Valley in Northern Utah with distances of 35, 50, 75 and 100 miles to suit all abilities. The courses provide challenging hills, long rolling flat stretches, and the clean fresh air of the Cache Valley.
One of the hallmarks of the Cache Gran Fondo is the festive finish line with 3 local restaurants providing local fresh food, great prizes and a chance to win gift items, bike stuff, gifts cards, and other great prizes from sponsors like Campchef, Al’s Sporting Goods, Malouf, ARS, and Joyride Bikes.
All courses will have prizes for both competitive riders as well as recreational cyclists as we provide over $15,000 dollars’ worth of awards, rider gifts and prizes, even those not racing can benefit from prizes awarded randomly across the event.
The Four Courses
- The 35-mile Piccolo Fondo is a perfect first ride, training ride, and rehab distance and e-bikes are welcome. The course is flat with only 440 feet of climbing over 35 miles.
- The 50-mile Classic Gran Fondo offers many of the same country-road sections as the 2019 Tour of Utah Stage 1, with only a rolling hill from Newton to Clarkston. 1,052 feet of climbing over the 53 miles.
- The 76-mile Medio Fondo is our race course. The UCI Gran Fondo Word Championship qualifier and the Gran Fondo National Series qualifier racers will compete for a chance to represent their country or state in these two prestigious events. Recreational riders will follow the pros out on the course and actually have the same opportunity to race for qualification as the racers, if they want to pour it on. Both racers and riders will be timed in this competitive race. Three support stops in Newton, Weston and Lewiston will give riders a chance to rest and refuel. 1,700 feet of climbing is spread over 75 miles and 3 gradual uphill sections.
- The 104-mile Century Fondo is recommended for riders who can maintain an 18-20 mph average, or who will be working together in a pack ride this course. 3,496 feet of climbing.
For the fifth year in a row, the UCI Gran Fondo World Series returns to the U.S. at the Cache Gran Fondo, one of only three qualifiers in North America.
The 50-mile Classic and 35-mile Piccolo Routes will not be competitively timed for GFNS Route placement and points, however both the 100-mile Century and 75-mile Medio courses will be professionally timed. All riders will be eligible for prizes based on random drawing throughout the day.
