The Amgen Tour of California has published it’s 2016 Tour Schedule.
Stage 6 will be a time trial held in Folsom, CA on May 20th, 2016. The course begins in Old Town, proceeds over Folsom Lake Crossing, and heads up Green Valley Road to Sophia Parkway, just across the county line in El Dorado Hills. This is the intermediate point where the riders will head back along the same route to Old Town. Time trials are fun with compact routes allowing more opportunities to check out the action.
If you are new to Folsom, you should know biking is a big deal. The city is very proud of its 34 miles of bike & pedestrian trails and residents use them a lot. Outdoor recreation is one of the many reasons that people love living in Folsom, and the excitement for the Amgen Tour is genuine and real.
It’s still a long way off, but hosting the time trail is a lot of fun.
