Tour De California

Today was a fun, fun morning and afternoon spent at the starting area of the Amgen Tour De California bicycle race. We got there early to visit all the booths, get a bunch of free swag, and watch the guys warming up. Once the race started we rang our cowbells and cheered the racers on. The predicted rain stayed at bay in San Francisco, and it turned out to be a great start to what should be and exciting week of cycling.

Try to ignore the guy's head, (I'm short, what can I say) and you can see what a gorgeous day it was.
