The Tour of California's 750-mile route through the state took nine days and drew an estimated two million fans. And most appropriately a California native, Levi Leipheimer, won it for the third consecutive time in the tour's four-year history (Floyd Landis, also from California, won the first tour) with teammate Lance Armstrong making his first U.S. comeback and placing seventh overall.

What we love about this bicycle race is that it shows off the beauty--from top to bottom--of our great state. Above is a collection showing the diversity of terrain they went through and the opportunities available to us in our travels.
