Tour of California: Palomar

Today the Tour of California had its final stage, which included Palomar Mountain. We packed our cameras, snacks and cowbells and headed to the top.


I chalked.

Allan carried burritos up for us.

We waited.


We chased with cowbells.

How's that for a few wheels?

Levi off the front . . .

It rained briefly.

Allan was excited . . . some guy from Austin showed up.


Palomar did not disappoint. It was a great day on the mountain!

Great photos. Wow, what a fun day. Note to myself: I MUST go and watch at least couple of TdF stages this year :-)

That is soooo cool! I am always amazed at how fast those guys ride. Up hill. Alone. I had to watch it on my sofa with my three legged dog. It just doesn't have the same effect.

Looks like you guys had a blast. What a fun day. Why can't we have a car follow us with wheels...I could have used them at a few races!
Loved the big star you chalked up!

Poor Freddie. He really had to pee and you guys were harassing him with the cowbell!

Fun fun! I was a bad cycling enthusiast and had no time to watch the TOC coverage, AND didn't go watch Stage 8!!! Boo! But I'm really glad Levi won :).

Nice pics!
