California’s International Cycling Stage

This May, cyclists from around the world will climb the hills and glide through the valleys of California in the Amgen Tour of California, one of the world’s largest and most recognized annual sporting events.

This seven day event that runs May 12-19, takes cycle enthusiasts through 800 miles of scenic California highways and roadways including Palm Springs, Santa Barbara, San Jose and San Francisco among other Golden State cities.

This year’s tour features 16 of the world’s top professional cycling teams that will challenge each other for the prize. For the first time, the tour will run south to north, presenting new challenges to athletes.
