The Amgen Tour of California is America’s premier professional cycling race set for May 12-18, 2019. Throughout seven stages over seven days, the world’s elite cyclists will contest more than 750 miles of roadways, highways and coastlines from Sacramento to Pasadena.
On May 16th, the fifth stage of the race will pass Riverbench Vineyard en route from Pismo Beach to Ventura.
