Early Afternoon: Amgen Bike Tour of California

The 2009 Amgen Tour of California is a professional style bike race modeled after the Tour de France. The race is governed by the same international cycling federation, we follow the same rules, we have the same teams, the same riders as the Tour de France. The principal difference between the two events is that the Amgen Tour of California is the first race of the season so it is shorter and not as arduous a route. The race consists of 16 teams - each with eight riders. The race consists of a Prologue and then eight point to point road stages. Each stage is between 95 and 135 miles in length. The race begins in Sacramento on Feb 14th and concludes in Escondido on Feb 22nd.

The 2008 Amgen Tour of California drew over 1.6 million spectators along the 650 mile route and quickly became the largest sporting event in the history of California. We will have live TV coverage on every stage for 2009. We will also being streaming live video on the Internet for the entire race.

Burn Season Begins December 1st.  Yard trimmings can be burned only on "burn days".  Telephone 1-800-CAL-BURN to hear the Monterey Bay Air Pollution Control District's daily recording declaring whether that day is a "burn day" or a "no burn day".  Their decisions are based on air pollution factors and not fire safety.  Before burning, residents should judge fire safety factors such as high winds.  Detailed regulations and fire safety information are available from the California Department of Forestry, 6059 Highway 9 in Felton, telephone 335-5353.  Some basic rules include:
  • Material being burned must have grown on the property and should be dry.
  • Burning is limited to daylight hours.
  • An adult must be in attendance.
  • Burn piles should be small and a safe distance from flammable vegetation and buildings.
  • A water source should be available.
