Cache Gran Fondo

Wow an Gran Fondo in northern Utah!  I am loving it!  And it’s in Cache Valley – were I graduated from college from (go Aggies!).  If you are not familiar with a Gran Fondo it’s an Italian word that basically means “Big Ride” and is a mix between an long recreational ride and a competitive event.It’s really a great opportunity to enjoy the beautiful Cache Valley area at your own pace.

Wow, I am really impressed with the quality of this event for being a first year event.  I believe there was over 500 riders there.  It was super well organized with all the bells and whistles.  They had breakfast for us before the event.  All sorts of yummy stuff to fill our cycling pockets with for the ride and just a great atmosphere.  When I crossed the line they handed me a cute finishers necklace and cool finishers towel (how cool is that!).  This is a race I would highly recommend and one I will most likely plan to do every year.  The 70 mile ride was perfect for me.  LOVED IT!

The race will be held on July 13 in 2013.  They have a 50 & 100 mile option.  Learn more
