Since 1983, Cache Valley has warmly welcomed thousands of LOTOJA Classic cyclists. LOTOJA is a bicycle race and also an acronym for Logan to Jackson. Its 206-mile course is incredibly scenic, especially grueling, and stands as the longest one-day USCF-sanctioned bicycle race in the country. Participants travel from all over the United States (and world) to test their physical and mental stamina on a course that climbs three mountain passes and nearly 10,000 feet. LOTOJA begins in Logan, Utah, weaves its way through southeastern Idaho, and finishes in the shadows of the Teton Mountain Range at Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The race is traditionally scheduled in September, the first Saturday after Labor Day.
