If you are planning on attending the finish of Stage 2 of the Amgen Tour of California. Sacramento can be tricky it park in and negotiate on a good weekend day. Throw in all of the traffic for a major cycling event and you’re likely to find yourself walking miles even if you do drive downtown. However, Sacramento Area Bicycle Advocates (SABA) are helping to solve this problem for you.
As in previous years, SABA will be manning a bike valet service on the lawn of the capitol building. You can ride your bike right to the finish line, and SABA volunteers will place your bike into a safe, fenced, staffed ‘bull pen.’ You’ll be given a claim ticket which you can use to claim your bike when you are ready to depart. And besides, riding your bike to a bike race just seems to complete the experience – doesn’t it?
