Santa Rosa is the Main Street of wine country and home to an avid cycling community epitomized in its hometown hero Levi Leipheimer. Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz and famed horticulturalist Luther Burbank also claim Santa Rosa as their hometown and thoughsands of visitors come each year to see the museums created in their honor. Santa Rosa is located just 55 miles north of San Francisco and is surrounded by nearly 200 wineries, and within 30 minutes of the famed redwood groves, the Russian River, and the spectacular Pacific coastline.
"Last year's Amgen Tour of California was an incredible high for our city. We are thrilled that you are coming back to Santa Rosa and pledge to do whatever we can to make sure that the second year is even more successful than the first. Thanks to everyone involved in this breathtaking event."
Mayor Jane Bender, City of Santa Rosa
"Santa Rosa is proud to host the Amgen Tour of California again. The excitement of the inaugural race still resonates and will reach a fevered pitch when the cyclists ride into town in 2007. We look forward to welcoming home Levi Leipheimer and all other cyclists and fans who enjoy Santa Rosa's hospitality and beautiful outdoors."
