Ive got VIP tickets to the ToC for the finish in San Luis Obispo *****es, which means I get an awesome view of the sprint finish instead of getting violated by a fire hydrant like i did last year as i tried to see over all the spectators. Also, i believe there are tv's to see the racers up until they arrive, i get a free ToC jersey, and there will be food. Not to mention ill be able to mingle with the racers after the finish. Top that.
Also, if you want some good riding of the route i recommend Highway 1 from Seaside to San Luis Obispo. Back in Oct my team and I rode up Highway 1 from SLO to Big Sur and it was AWESOME!. Beautiful ocean cliff views on one side and huge green forest trees on the other.
