In a few days, one of the most prestigious professional cycling competitions will make its way down the California Coast. The Amgen Tour of California, which runs May 11-18, attracts elite cyclists from all over the world, including Olympians. The race has 12 stops along California’s legendary Highway 1, and for the first time in the race’s nine year run, Cambria will be an official host city on the course. With four local Moonstone Beach hotels, we are excited to welcome competitors and fans as an official sponsor of the Stage 4 Finish in Cambria on May 14.
The finish line may be only the beginning for one lucky fan in Cambria. Don’t miss the Pacifica Hotels booth, where we’ll be raffling a 5-night stay at the Courtyard Marriott King Kamehameha’s Kona Beach Hotel, the long-standing host hotel for the IRONMAN® World Championships, where world-class triathletes begin their 140.6-mile journey with a swim right outside the hotel.
Our Sandcastle Inn and Spyglass Inn hotels also look forward to welcoming teams and fans to the sea-side town of Pismo Beach, another first-time host city. Following a scenic and restful stay, the challenging 720-mile competition will pick up with the Stage 5 Start on the 1200’ Pismo Beach pier.
If you seek the thrill of the race, we welcome you to emulate part of the Amgen Tour yourself or secure a last minute front row seat. Our staff can provide local route details and landmarks. Cambria and Pismo Beach rates range from $175-$425. For more information or reservations, visit the Pacifica Hotels cycling page at http://www.pacificahotels.com/adventures/cyclists.
