Big things are happening in North Logan this year. On KVNU’s For the People program last week, recreation director Jesse Howe said a marquis event will be in August as the city will for the first time, host the first stage of the Tour of Utah.
“They usually come up to the north every other year, and the south is every other year,” said Howe. “The last time it was up here was in Logan City and then this year we decided to try to take it over and see how it works for our community.
“A lot of excitement (is) going around over this, this huge bicycle race. For those of you who don’t know about the Tour of Utah, it is huge.”
He said the exact route has not been finalized yet for what’s described as America’s toughest stage race. Howe said the city will prepare for the race by making sure the roads are in good condition with no potholes, etc. Also, the city will work to find housing for the staff and racers as well, as about 400 rooms are needed for the night surrounding August 13th.
Other big events coming to North Logan include the Cache Cup Racing competition and a Soapbox Derby in April. You can get more information at NorthLoganCity.org
