Any ideas on where the Pismo to Avila stage will go?
Most of the other stages are easier to figure out possibilities.

I'm bummed they don't have Santa Rosa on there for the 2nd straight year. I went to ever SR stage they had before and it was always a great turnout. But I guess they catered to the SoCal towns this year. I guess I will have to choose from Sac or SJ this year.

Since I live in SoCal I'm very happy to see stages returning to Big Bear and Mt. Baldy. That said, having a time trial in Big Bear seems a little silly, unless they're going to throw in the Onyx Summit climb (which I doubt).

Also, regarding the towns/cities having to put up the money . . . I can't imagine a village the size of Mt. Badly being able to put up the money!

Since I rode the Devil Mountain double century last March, I have come to appreciate some of the great climbs you have in NorCal! Also agree that Eastern Sierra area needs to be included some year.

They could finish a stage in Mammoth atop Minaret Summit. That would be some great scenery!
