Amgen Bicycle Tour Will Pass Near Yosemite

Mariposa, CA — Yosemite National Park officials are gearing up for next week’s Amgen Bicycle Tour of California.

For the first time, the 750 mile tour will travel through the gateway communities of Mariposa and Oakhurst.

Park Ranger Kari Cobb says visitors entering the park via Hwy 41 and 140 will experience traffic delays between noon and 2pm on Wednesday, February 18 because of stage four. She says park visitors can utilize the time by watching over 100 world class cyclists biking through the region.

Many will be focused on the comeback effort of Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong.
