Where to watch the Amgen Tour of California
SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – In little more than two weeks, the largest cycling event in North America and the third largest in the world will land in Lake Tahoe. Hundreds of the best pedalers from around the globe will ascend and descend the rise and fall of the lake’s perimeter at an average speed of 28 mph. And thousands of visitors are expected to gape at the cyclists during the race.
When selecting a viewing location, consider parking, crowds, events and the speed of the cyclists as they pass by, whether they’re chugging up a hill or sprinting in the flats. Bicycles may be the most practical way to access a number of spots as the roads will be closed for short periods and heavy traffic may occur as viewers make their way from one spot to the next.
