Little Red is a fully supported, non-competitive, women-only cycling event. A selection of 27, 36, 50, 70 and 100-mile routes provides a ride for everyone to enjoy through the beautiful Cache Valley in Northern Utah.
Little Red raises money for the fight against cancer in women. A portion of every rider's fee is donated to the Huntsman Cancer Foundation for breast and ovarian cancer research.
Little Red’s founders, Alice Telford and Sue Schalow, were inspired after riding the Cinderella Classic Ride in Alameda County, CA. It was fun on 2 wheels and Alice and Sue began thinking how they could put together something similar back in their home state of Utah.
While out riding one day through the small towns and rolling farmlands of Cache Valley, they decided it was the perfect spot for a new women’s ride. Calling on their fellow Bonneville Cycling Club members, Alice, Sue, and 25 other women created the first-ever Little Red. The ride grew steadily from 185 riders in 1999 to more than 3,500 today.
Little Red has become a much-loved event, attracting riders from across North America. Friday night activities include a Theme Party with live music, vendors, great food, a costume contest, and over-the-top decorations. Saturday's ride ends with a finish line celebration, ice cream bar and big smiles.
BCC members receive discounted entry fees and can bypass the lottery entry system after completing five club rides.
