Big Bear, Ca, November 3, 2011, 3:30pm – Big Bear will be a host city for the 6th stage of the race. The route will once again be from Palmdale to Big Bear, however the exact route is unknown at this time. The Big Bear Cycling Association, which emerged during the 2010 Amgen Tour of California, has since developed into a strong organization with more than 120 members. Big Bear has also become a training ground for professional cycling teams, with the New Zealand pro team Pure Black training in the Big Bear Valley earlier this year. The Tour of California is set to come to Big Bear on May 18th for the Big Bear Climb. The finish line will once again be at Snow Summit, with vendors, and a lifestyle fair, and ample room for spectators.
