We started LoToJa (Logan to Jackson) here at the bike shop in the early 80′s when Dave Bern came in complaining about being overweight and out-of-shape, and needing a big goal. A 200 mile one-day bike race, surrounded by mountains, sounded like fun.

The LoToJa Bicycle Classic is a 206-mile (332 km), one-day amateur bicycle road race from Logan, UT to Jackson Hole, WY, USA. It is usually held in September the first Saturday after Labor Day, and attracts national and International participants. LoToJa is one of the longest one-day road cycling races in the U.S, and is the longest one-day race sanctioned by USA Cycling, the sport’s governing body based in Colorado Springs, CO. The race began in 1983 here at the Sunrise Cyclery shop, and celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2012. In 1983 the race had nine participants. In 2011, it had over 1,500 riders.
