From May 11-18, 2014, the north-tosouth route travels along more than 700 miles of scenic roads through some of California’s most picturesque backdrops. The 11 host cities during the eight-day event include Folsom, San Jose, Mt. Diablo, Monterey, Cambria, Pismo Beach, Santa Barbara, Santa Clarita, Mountain High, Pasadena and Thousand Oaks.
Sacramento previously hosted 2009’s spectacular prologue as well as the stage finishes in 2007, 2008, 2010 and 2011. The following day, the Individual Time Trial (Stage 2) will see racers competing against the clock in the former gold rush city of Folsom, which makes its race debut this year.
