Refuel, Relax & Explore
After the athletes in the Amgen Tour of California race out of town (Feb. 17), you may feel the yearning for an excursion of your own. The placid countryside surrounding Merced just begs for a bike ride, so pedal eastward along South Bear Creek Drive.
Spot the Amgen Start in Merced at a Local, Sustainable Restaurant
With both a year-round covered patio that seats 75 and an upstairs dining room overlooking Main Street, Bishop’s on the Square —only a little over a block from the race start—gives you a great vantage point for watching racers fly by.
Take an Easy Ride to See the Extreme Side of Cycling
Pedal west on the scenic Clovis Old Town Trail for a morning’s outing to Woodward Park, an open space of trees, wildlife and fish-stocked lakes. Avid cyclists, though, will surely want to check out the new mountain bike park, where dirt jumps, log rides, tire piles, and other rough obstacles challenge the skilled and fearless.
Gather in Clovis with other Cyclists in the Heart of the Amgen Action
Clovis’s sweet Old Town is home not just to the finish of Amgen’s Stage 4, but also to an active cycling community that loves to gather at the Corner Café. Don’t miss the nearby burgeoning Madera Wine trail.
