Amgen Tour of CaliforniaThe Amgen Tour of California returned to the Santa Barbara South Coast, and what a sight to see! For eight days, some of the world’s top professional cycling teams competed in a challenging course that includes nearly 700 miles of scenic California highways and roadways. The Santa Barbara South Coast was lucky enough to be the official host of the Stage 5 finish on Thursday May 15, 2014.
Uniquely situated between the mountains and ocean, Santa Barbara and the neighboring South Coast communities of Goleta, Montecito, Summerland and Carpinteria, offer both cyclists and fans a true taste of California. Our clean air, beautiful beaches, sparkling waterfront and stunning mountainsides, invite visitors to enjoy the area's healthy lifestyle and endless outdoor recreational opportunities.
While the race might be over for 2014, you can still learn more and get inspired with these Amgen Tour of California videos and press highlights. We look forward to sharing the thrill of the race and the beauty of the destination with you!
