Today we went to see stage 2 of the Tour of California bike race as it passed near our home in the Santa Cruz Mountains.
We walked down to a sharp curve in Calif 35 (Summit Road near Calif 17) that Craig thought would be interesting as the riders encountered it after a mostly-downhill "5 Km sprint".
I was just using my little point and shoot Canon and was only able to get a few quick shots as the pelaton zoomed by.
[From Craig: Merikay's original read "point and shoot Cannon". Yes, cannons are important to all of us Santa Cruz Mountain people :-)]
We were on a cliff overlooking highway 17 below.
You can just barely make out a few of the riders after they crossed the bridge over CA 17.
Quite a descent and sharp turns!
For those who care about such things, Slovakia's Peter Sagan won the stage, as he had won stage 1 yesterday. In the course of the race, he overcame his second flat tire in as many days, a crash into a pile of wrecked riders, and nearly being side-swiped by his own team car. (The next Lance Armstong?)
