Ventura hosts Amgen Tour of California 2019

Here we go! The biggest professional cycling race in America, the 2019 Amgen Tour of California, is coming to Ventura (again!). This year’s race, the longest and most challenging course in the Tour’s 14-year history, promises thrills from start (Sacramento; May 12) to finish (Pasadena; May 18).

Once again, our small beach town will welcome the world in a big way. On May 16th, the colorful peloton will sweep into — and out of — Ventura. The epicenter of everything will be the Ventura Fairgrounds, where spectators can see the women’s stage start (12:10 pm) and finish (roughly 2:50 pm), and the finish of the fifth stage of the men’s race (which begins in Pismo Beach) at an estimated 3:41 pm. Please check our blog,  for Ventura route specifics.

Keep checking in with us for the latest race updates. And plans are in the works for special things…
