AMGEN Tour of California - May 19, 2017

Amgen Tour of California at Big Bear Lake

Come for the race. Stay for the place!


Big Bear Lake is proud to be hosting Stage 6 of the Amgen Tour of California and their first ever high-altitude time trial on May 19, 2017. Our mountainous terrain and 6,750-foot elevation will surely put these riders to the test. This will be the third year Big Bear has hosted a stage for the tour and we are excited to be welcoming spectators for the Men's Individual Time Trial stage. A fan-favorite, the time trial racers take off one at a time, racing for the best time of the day.

This will be an amazing event for the whole family with a weekend full of fun events and activities. Don't miss your chance to be part of the action!

Big Bear Lake is offering VIP Lodging Packages with awesome perks for those who want to take advantage of the eventful weekend, but hurry, there are limited spots.
