STAGE 2 – May 16
Nevada City to Sacramento
The Tour of California Stage 2 will leave Broad Street, Nevada City, @ 12:30 p.m. The riders are expected to arrive in Sacramento around 3:30 p.m.
The route will start in Nevada City, California (last year’s official Start City) and after working its way west for several miles, the peloton will turn south and head through one of the country’s premier military installations, Beale Air Force Base.
From there it will be a fast ride through the suburbs of Sacramento. Entering the circuit just past the finish line in Sacramento, the riders will begin the first of two circuit laps with a finish at the State Capitol building. You can expect the crowds in Sacramento to be some of the largest for the entire race.
