Tour of California to roll through Ocean Beach area Monday
UPDATE 12:35 p.m. May 14, 2012 – Dozens of people lined the Great Highway to get a glimpse of the 2012 Tour of California bicycle race Monday.
They barely had time to blink, as the cyclists sped by in just a few seconds. Some late-arriving spectators missed the whole thing, even including the long train of support vehicles that followed the riders.
Watch the Ocean Beach Bulletin’s video of Tour of California cyclists passing on the Great Highway at the intersection of Taraval Street:
The Tour of California bicycle race is set to pass through San Francisco Monday, closing roads on the west side of the city, including the Great Highway.
Stage 2 of the 2012 Tour of California is scheduled to start at 11:05 a.m. Monday in the Marina District. Cyclists will pass the Golden Gate Bridge and then the Legion of Honor at Lands End before turning onto the Great Highway and past Ocean Beach. From there they continue down to the stage finish at Aptos, south of Santa Cruz.
Although the race starts just after 11 a.m., San Francisco motorists could experience street closures and delays from 10 a.m. to noon Monday.
