Hundreds of cyclists are expected to be a part of the second annual Cache Gran Fondo, which starts at Logan Regional Hospital at 6:30 a.m. Saturday.
The event includes a 50- or 100-mile through the mountain-encircled Cache Valley and ends up in downtown Logan where the annual Sidewalk Sale is going on.
Troy Oldham, race director and executive director of the Logan Regional Hospital Foundation, said riders will tackle either one course or another and all of the proceeds will go to fund mammogram screenings.
“There’s a lot of really great events that will send dollars to a larger national organization; whether it be cancer or heart or whatever,” Oldham said. “But we really felt strongly that this needs to be for our valley. It needs to stay here in the valley, so that’s why we focused on the breast screenings.”

Along the way they will be able to stop, recover and rehydrate at a number of well-stocked support stations.
