We've been looking forward to today for a few months now. Today, Stage 3 of the Amgen bike tour is coming by our house!! Our neighborhood will be completely shut in from 1-3 as the tour passes us on 2 sides. After years of riders requesting to "be able to climb Mt. Diablo"...they re-routed the tour to include the Mt this year, and today is the day the get to do it!!
Since I would have had to pick up the kids at noon due to the road closures, they are home all day today and we have our cowbells and chairs and snacks all ready to go set up alongside the road.
