Saturday Tom and I rode to Livermore to see the start of the 7th leg of the Amgen Tour of California.  There were a lot of people with the same idea.  It was fun out on the road with so may people on their bikes.

I got to ride with my new inspirational art on my bike bag - Maggie sent it to me for Mother's Day!  So now I start every ride by saying "WaHoo!"

People were lining up to see the start of the race. We wandered around the booths and through the team areas.  There were hordes of fans waiting outside the team buses for the riders to appear - I admit I wouldn't recognise one if he sat in my lap!

There is a womens group on the tour but we didn't see any of the women around.

We walked back to the main street which the riders would come down after the start.  I got a quick photo of them coming and going.  The number of security and support vehicles was huge - way more of them than there were riders!

Off they went to climb Mt. Diablo - and off we went to ride home.
