Tour of California -

We walked down to the junction to see the bicycles swirl past.  What I didn't expect was the support staff.   Bicycles may be environmentally correct, but a bicycle race is not.  There were CHP's trucks and motorcycles, all running.  There were support trucks, and vans, innumerable cars with bicycles atop, photo motorcycles, VIP cars, and more CHP's.  It was amazing, and then, a tight, little cluster whirled past and it was thrilling and fun.  We stood on the little bridge by the Dipsea so had a good view, though next year I would probably go up on Mount Tam and go more panoramic, but this way we were as close as we could get., without being part of the pack   Bicycle racing here, though, is certainly not what it is in France.  We had plenty of space to look around and enjoy the view, and then, a lovely walk back.
