The team at Strambecco rates the Best Cycling Events Utah 2024 based on various factors, including reputation, route quality, location, rider feedback, and the event's or race's overall uniqueness. Strambecco does not list every event.  We strive to identify and review special and noteworthy events, spanning Road, Gravel, and Mountain Bike events and races.

Utah, with its diverse landscapes, offers cyclists a wide range of terrain to conquer and breathtaking vistas to behold. The state hosts several iconic cycling events that attract riders from around the country. Whether you're looking for challenging gran fondos or epic desert adventures, Utah has something for every type of cyclist. If we had to pick the best of the Best Cycling Events Utah 2024, here are three notable cycling events that showcase the best of Utah's cycling scene.

In the Gravel Category, the Belgian Waffle Ride Utah (Cedar City) in the Spring stands out and is part of the Belgian Waffle Ride Series, a North American series offering some of the world's most highly respected and well-organized gravel events/races in North America.  BWR UT is the second leg of the Tripel Crown of Gravel Series, a special competition within the full Belgian Waffle Ride Series lineup that involves participation in BWR AZ (March 1-2), BWR UT (April 5-6), BWR CA (27-28)The series is produced by innovative production company Monuments of Cycling.

In the MTB Category, we'd recommend Moab Rocks, a three-day MTB stage race that takes riders through the legendary trails of Moab, known for their unique red rock formations and challenging singletrack. The race covers approximately 100 miles over three stages.  Moab Rocks is a showcase of Moab's world-class mountain biking trails. The event allows riders to experience the iconic slickrock terrain, stunning vistas, and the unique desert landscape that defines Moab as a premier mountain biking destination.  Moab Rock is part of the TransRockies Race Series.

Finally, in the Road category, we'd recommend Utah-Cache Gran Fondo in the Fall in Logan, Utah.  The Utah-Cache Gran Fondo is a celebration of scenic Cache Valley. It features several distance options ranging from 40 to 100 miles, each taking riders through the rolling hills and charming farmlands of Cache Valley.  The Utah-Cache Gran Fondo is beloved for its beautiful surroundings and well-organized events. The ride embodies the spirit of gran fondos, offering a festive atmosphere with post-race celebrations, local food, and breathtaking views of the Cache Valley.  Utah-Cache is also part of the prestigious Gran Fondo National Seriesa 10+ national event series culminating in the opportunity to compete in the USA Cycling Gran Fondo National Championship taking place in 2024 at Gran Fondo, Maryland.
