Stage 3

Tuesday May 16 2017 - Pismo Beach to Morro Bay - 113.7 miles 5,500 ft
 

Two-time Host City Pismo Beach returns this year, and the aroma of clam chowder and the sound of crashing waves will be the sendoff for this nearly 115-mile stage.

The riders will enjoy a little of everything they have come to expect from California: beaches, sand dunes, vineyards and wineries, a little climbing, lots of spectators, and lush countryside. Guadalupe, Orcutt, Nipomo, Arroyo Grande and San Luis Obispo will all welcome the riders as they head back to the coast and a finish in Morro Bay, which became a very popular start city in its first showing last year.

Riders will encounter one KOM, two sprints, and a nasty little .5 km climb to the finish.
