Steve's a big fan of bike racing so for the 4th year in a row, we attended the Tour of California bike race. This year we went to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena to watch the 5 lap circuit. It was a lot of fun and we were actually able to see our favorite racers. The kids got a nice souvenier t-shirt with the race map on the back, and hats with logos of their favorite racers. Sunday we went down to Escondido to watch part of the uphill race. Can't believe how fast they go up those steep hills! If you blinked, you would have missed it! After they passed we headed back down to Grand St, visited the sponsor booths for free goodies and tried to watch the final stage finish at the finish line along with the other million people there! It was a lot of fun and very exciting, plus Levi won for a 3rd year in a row, which was great!
