Ride one day or all 5. Either way, come join us for an epic experience!
The U5 Challenge is the most ambitious and epic amateur cycling event Utah has to offer.
The U5 beckons to zealous cycling enthusiasts from all over the state and country. If you’ve ever wanted to ride something as monumental as a multi-stage cycling event, now’s your chance. The U5 Challenge is a fully-supported Gran Fondo that takes cyclists from Logan to St. George, Utah in 5 unforgettable days. Weaving along the Wasatch Range in the north and across the rolling plains and red rock deserts of the south, riders tackle some of the most picturesque and challenging landscapes the state has to offer.
This grand event is meant to bring out the best in every participant, whether you’re a hobby cyclist or a determined racer. (The U5 offers prizes for competition and medals for all participants.) The U5 Challenge and its organizers (Spin Utah) aim to help cyclists achieve something truly remarkable and unforgettable.
If you’re an ambitious cyclist with a hunger for something extraordinary, then The U5 Challenge is for you. Don’t worry if you’ve never ridden 531 miles in 5 days over varying terrain. If you have the will, we can show you the way! What’s more, if you can’t find the time to devote to all 5 days, or else can’t see yourself doing so, we strongly encourage you to register a relay team or sign up for a single day registration so that you can still join us for this amazing event.
