It’s Bike Week!

Kids' Bike Rodeo is May 11; Tour of California is May 14

Morgan Hill Bike Week (or 12 days, to be exact) kicked off last week and leads up to the May 14 Amgen Tour of California Stage 3 finish near the city’s Outdoor Sports Center.

Bike Week festivities so far have included the monthly Bike Party (May 3), Community Ride (May 5), Bike to School Day (May 8), Bike to Work Day (May 9) and Bike Movie Night (May 9).

Coming up on May 11 is a free Kids’ Bike Rodeo, from noon to 3pm at the parking lot at East First and Depot streets. The rodeo features a variety of bike activities for kids, as well as food trucks and live entertainment.

The Bike Week festivities end May 14 with the Tour of California’s 128.6-mile Stage 3 finish on Condit Road. The stage will begin early that morning in Stockton, and the peloton (large group of cyclists) will be entering Morgan Hill between 3:15 and 3:30pm on Monterey Road via the southbound lanes.

From about 2:45 to 3:45pm May 14, TOC organizers will close the entire Stage 3 course, which will likely affect local vehicle traffic. To see the detailed Stage 3 route and a full list of street closures on May 14, visit the city’s website at morganhill.ca.gov.
