2018 was a great year for recognition, & we are very excited about being a member of the UCI Gran Fondo World Championship Series!

Also, listen to a podcast with Breakfast Epiphanies on itunes. Interview with race director Troy Oldham on the event, new courses, and the recent National Gran Fondo series.
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 38 and 70+ mile route, or as a training ride for bigger events like Ultimate Challenge and LOTOJA.
