A Northern California Criterium sometime this Spring, assuming sponsorship to hold these events is available (cross your fingers). I'd go to watch and take photos. I'm open to suggestions.
Sea Otter Classic is the big bike consumer show associated with bike races in Monterey, California. This year, the Sea Otter organizers have added a Gran Fondo. Since I ride my bike from Santa Cruz to the venue at Laguna Seca, I've already had my Gran Fondo riding in for the week. Sea Otter takes place from April 15 to 18.
California Bike to Work Day on May 13, 2010. I typically do a Tour of South Bay BTWD Energizer Stations in the morning, but I've already been invited to attend some BTWD events in San Francisco. What to do?
Tour of California takes place May 16 to 23. Like the past couple of years, I'll be at the Northern California stages.
Tour de France will take place July 3 to July 25. I won't be there but just do my usual links to other authoritative sources like I've done in the past.
A Charity Ride (TBD). It's been a few years since my family and I have participated in a charity ride. Which Bay Area ride should we do this year?
Interbike, September 20 - 24 in Vegas, Baby. Of course I'll be at North America's biggest bike show, unless I end up on another last minute whirlwind adventure.
4th Annual Bicycle Bash by the Bay, held somewhere in the Tampa Bay area (downtown St. Pete, usually). I don't think an official date has been set, but it's usually the latter part of October or the first weekend in November.
Come on down...you'll always have a place to stay here!
Nevada City Classic or Cat's Hill Classics are, well, classics. Last year Lance, Levi and Chris showed up at Nevada City, Cat's Hill has had it's date with Mr Lemond before he hit it really big. Plus, they're close. I could offer you some photo coverage of one or both them for you, if you can't make it over the hill.
A couple riding buddies did course marshalling for 2009 Livestrong in San Jose and had a great ride. I'll do that one, if I can.
I've never been to Interbike - I've avoided Vegas pretty successfully. Need a camera for that?
