I just got a weekly email from Passion Trail Bikes and it included this little tidbit...

Caretakers of the Potrero Nuevo Farm south of Half Moon Bay have created a "Bike Hut" as a rest area for cyclists. This is one of the coolest things we've heard about in a while. The address of Potrero Nuevo Farm is 1045 Tunitas Creek Road, Half Moon Bay, 94019, and their number is 650-726-5700
We recently got word from the bike hut guy that he's looking for old beater bikes to decorate the hut:

But why would someone be driving by rather than riding by...I don't know. Anyway...I could pick up bikes in SF or in or around Half Moon Bay, too.
We're planning something for the Tour of California day (Mon Feb 16) so keep a lookout for more emails. What we're talking about in broad terms is offering free parking for people who arrive in the early morning (before they close the road to traffic, but I don't know any details about that) and inviting people to gather at The Bike Hut. We'll be selling some of the snacks and drinks we plan on carrying in the Hut in the future. Bringing snacks on your own and picnicking is fine, too. People could then ride up Tunitas Creek Road and watch the Tour in the hills or just watch from the Hut. I'm guessing the peloton will be passing through around 10:00-10:30 based on the stage info/map provided by Amgen.
So, thanks in advance if you happen to bring by a bike or bike part for my signs and hope to see many of you on the Tour day. It'll be a fine day to call in sick! As usual, feel free to pass the word and if anyone learns details about the race, like road closure plans, etc. please let me know so I can include it in my next group email.
