Sausalito is a picturesque waterfront community just across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco. With its Mediterranean flair and breathtaking views, it is often compared to the French Riviera. An historic town that dates back over 100 years from before the California Gold rush, Sausalito blends the best of old world character and new world amenities. With Bayside marinas, open air cafes and first-class restaurants, boutique hotels, unique shops and art galleries, as well as it’s thriving houseboat community and artists studios, Sausalito offers visitors and residents alike a special charm and hospitality. It is also a world-class venue for biking, hiking and boating and hosted the first stage and international race start of the inaugural Amgen Tour of California in 2006. With easy access to the redwood forests in Muir Woods, Mt.Tamalpais, the scenic north coast and wine country, Sausalito is the gateway to some of the most beautiful and sought after destinations in the world. It’s a destination; it’s a lifestyle, and it’s just minutes from San Francisco, easily accessible by car, bus, bike or by ferryboat. For more information please visit www.sausalito.org.
"For the third year in a row, Sausalito is once again proud to host the first stage and start of the internationally acclaimed Amgen Tour of California bike race.
As an epicenter of cycling, I know that all of Marin County looks forward to welcoming these professional cyclists and spectators from around the world next President's Day weekend."
