If you have never been to the Redlands Bicycle Classic, treat yourself. It's easy to get to from anywhere in Southern California. It's easy to find a place to stay. You can ride the various courses easily. You'll be surprised how many great restaurants are around, and by the level of cycling hysteria. The racing is phenomenal in this 26-year-old stage race, restored to its place as first major US stage race of the year. The final day's circuit race on the legendary Sunset Loop is spectator friendly and probably the most spectacular racing you can follow from the roadside anywhere in the world.
We heard two rumors today that ought to clinch your decision, but we may not be able to talk about them yet.
If you're coming out in support of our Jelly Belly boys on their new Focus Cayo bikes with SRAM Red, RTS Carbon wheels with Kenda Tires, 3T bars and stems and posts, and fi'zi:k sexiness, let us know. We'll get something together.
Refreshments and delicious candy at least.
Maybe a ride? You'll appreciate Sunset Loop a lot more on Sunday if you ride it a couple of times on Saturday.
We hope to see you there. Shout beforehand or say hello out there in the 909.
