Yesterday I learned from a colleague what cyclists likely already know: The Tour of California's last stage now takes place between Rancho Bernardo and Escondido. Up to 100,000 people are expected to be on or around Grand Ave. in downtown Escondido when the largest cycling event in the United States ends on Feb. 22.
Watching the Tour de France is a summer tradition in our household, so being able to see many of these guys whirl by on their bikes -- including Lance Armstrong again -- is a unique opportunity I don't want to miss. Especially since we are one suburb away from RB and a 15-minute drive from downtown Escondido. (Somehow, though, I doubt either will be that easy to access on that day!)
