Pescadero Stage

The local roads through the Santa Cruz Mountain make for excellent bicycle riding.

It is for this reason that the Tour of California bike race has twice chosen a ride through Pescadero for one of their most picturesque stages. Here they are making the climb up Tunitas Creek Road. The tours goes past the Pescadero High School, through the Santa Cruz Mountains. Getting close to the riders during the climbs affords an appreciation for how hard they are working.  Watching the support teams jockey for position is pretty exciting too!
