Four years ago, the Tour of California finished up in the town where I live. I was able to walk about 5 minutes to a nice vantage point and watch them do 3 loops around the area.

Today, they did the same thing, but added a final smaller loop that passed by our house 2km from the finish.

During 2 separate days earlier this week, it passed within a few miles of my parents' house. It's one thing to watch bicycle racing on TV. It's completely different to watch it in person. And to watch them on TV riding some of your favorite routes. Admittedly, a bit faster than me... :)

I hope you appreciate that some of us are now trying to figure out what the Tour of California was doing in Korea ;)

They got lost? :)

(BTW, I haven't been in Korea for over 4 years.)

The Cape Argus cycle tour (the world's largest individually timed cycle race with on average 35,000 entrants) goes within 100ft of my house every year - awesome to see world class cyclists up close.

The first half or so of that video is the end of almost every ride I do as well. :)
