Amgen Tour of California 2015


Stage 1 of the 2015 Amgen Tour of California women's road bike race passed through 
South Lake Tahoe on May 8th, 2015. This is the 10th annual bicycle race sponsored by Amgen, and the second time the tour has stopped in Lake Tahoe.  


The men's race in 2011 famously got snowed out even later in May and we had our doubts about this one right up until the day.  Luckily this year the race went off without a hitch.  



 I caught up with the race start at Ski Run and Pioneer trail where the kids from Bijou Community school were cheering for the ladies;



 and again in front of the Montbleu where I caught the end of the race turning after going 72 miles around Lake Tahoe in a little under 3 hours.  It was a remarkably close race with practically the whole pack going by in less than a minute.  

 and got some comments from the crowd including longtime follower +Marius C.

New Years 2015 in Stateline


It was as cold as I can remember it ever being in Lake Tahoe for New Year's Eve 2015.  My cell phone read 13 degrees when I left at 11:30 and had dropped to barely 10F by the time I got home.  Though there were an extra 25,000 people in town for Snow Globe, they were all on the other side of town so it was actually unusually quiet at Stateline this year.

2014 South Tahoe Christmas Parade

The 2014 South Lake Tahoe Christmas Parade




This year I missed the usual evening holiday parade through Stateline, so I decided that I would change things up and film the daytime parade that happens a little later in the month instead.

 This is the 3rd straight year that they have put on both day and nighttime holiday parades, and though it had snowed an inch or so the night before it was a nice warm day by afternoon and I was surprised to see practically no crowd along the parade route this time.

 It was still a pretty awesome parade, featuring +JoAnn Conner  and Tom Davis, as well as several Santas and decorated fire engines and emergency vehichles as well as many locals driving decorated cars and trucks.




If you're interested in learning more about Golden Bear Events, check out my blog page on the Lake Tahoe Home and Garden Show that they put on last April.
