Images from all around Ventura as the Amgen Tour of California rolled through!
by Visit VenturaStage Two of the Amgen Tour of California began at Ventura Pier where giant kites accompanied by aerialists and a Color Guard from Naval Base Ventura County welcomed cyclists, their teams, media, and onlookers to the race and lifestyle festival. Once the race started, cyclists made their way to Main Street where the students of Holy Cross School shouted cheers and waved signs from Mission Park as Ventura’s new historic mural shined across the street. Just in front of the mission steps, the Consulate of Mexico in Oxnard and Ballet Folklorico Bell Arts dancers welcomed the cyclists to the beat of Mariachi Reyes paying tribute to Ventura’s Latin roots. Upon reaching Plaza Park, cyclists were welcomed by community members who had prepared a wheel formation featuring giant Ventura-branded parachutes. A little further down the road, cyclists were greeted with cheers from students of Lincoln Elementary and Cabrillo Middle School who prepared a bike formation complete with spinning wheels to commemorate the event.
