"Tour of California" Bike Race comes through town!The Amgen Tour of California is going on throughout California this week, and Stage 3 of the race passed barely two miles from our front door! With four avid cyclists in the family (and one Sunday rider), the opportunity to glimpse some of the world's best cyclists was too good to pass up. So we bicycled over to Ygnacio Valley Road and watched the racers climb the Limeridge grade between the towns of Walnut Creek and Clayton.
It was thrilling to watch them go by as they started up the hill, followed by a half-dozen chase cars with very expensive spare bikes on top. A little more than 7 minutes later the horde of riders in the peloton arrived, followed by a veritable army of support vehicles!
